Awards Programs

As the year starts to wind down, you will want to recognize your members on the local level for all they have accomplished this year. At the end of every school year, some chapters like to hold a local Awards Program or End of the Year Banquet. This is a great way to recognize your members for placing at the Region or State Leadership Conference, completing a level of the BAA or CSA programs, or for serving as a Local Chapter Officer.  This is also a great time to recognize the members who will be wearing an FBLA cord at Graduation. As the year comes to a close, make sure you celebrate all that your members have done this year.

February Icebreaker: What’s Your Theme Song?

As we continue to prepare for SLC, it is important to step back and take a moment to relax. February’s Icebreaker is What’s Your Theme Song? Ask members to imagine they’re in a movie. What song would play when they walk into a scene? Would it be a rousing number like in Rocky or The Office? Have someone to write down everyone’s responses and you can use that information throughout the year to, say, play music whenever a member accomplishes a milestone. It is important to celebrate all victories (both big and small) and constantly encourage members.
