We are so proud of each and every chapter in Georgia FBLA this year – it has been extraordinary. We began the year with a historic Fall Motivational Rally in Perry with a record 9,500 members in attendance. At that moment on October 13th we knew every chapter and member was going to shine brighter than ever before. Georgia FBLA chapters from across the state – from Ringgold to Savannah – has donated tens of thousands of service hours helping local communities, raising awareness, and building a better state for everyone. We raised thousands upon thousands of dollars for our National Service Partner – March of Dimes – in the fight to eradicate premature births. The Fall Leadership in Athens was another monumental conference for FBLA members which set members up for the 2017 Region Leadership Conferences! This year’s RLCs were one for the books with a record breaking attendance and winners – now we’re ready for SLC in March!

Congratulations to all of the RLC competitors who competed in an event this year! We wish the best of luck to all members who are moving on to State and possibly even Nationals. A special shout out to the 13 Chapters who won Sweepstakes at their RLC.

We hope all of the members who are graduating this year will use everything they have learned in FBLA over this past year in their life. Think about the leadership skills you learned in workshops, the tips your community leaders shared with you, and the networks  built over the years will all help build your future. We hope that everything you learned in FBLA will prepare you for the real world and make you a FUTURE BUSINESS LEADER.

For those who still have years left in FBLA, you have the opportunity to build one of the best foundations for your future. Use your upcoming high school years to become more active in FBLA by serving in an officer position, attending more conferences, and by getting as involved as possible.

We wish every member, graduate, and chapter the best of luck as they pursue their goals in the upcoming year. We hope we can be here to help you flourish as leaders, servants, and scholars.
