The holidays are finally here! While you and your members are busy jingle bell rocking and filling up stockings, keep in mind that keeping members involved is a year-round responsibility for officers. Members are enjoying holiday festivities as the year winds down, so why not celebrate altogether as an FBLA chapter?
This month’s tip is to dedicate a meeting for a holiday social event! Consider offering games, sweets, prizes, and other fun activities to get members excited, and assign the set-up tasks to different officers to make sure everything runs smoothly.
When you picture an FBLA meeting, your mind likely does not conjure up images of students enjoying frosted cookies and singing Christmas karaoke, but it is never a bad idea to break up monotony by dedicating a meeting to pure, unadulterated fun.
While members are there, offer updates and reminders about upcoming chapter activities or FBLA events in general. For instance, make sure your competitors do not forget that RLC is coming up very soon!
Enjoy the holidays, and do it together! Celebrating can be a bonding experience for all, and it only takes one meeting to get new and old members engaged with all the holly, jolly fun of FBLA.
