What is BAA?
The Business Achievement Awards is a leadership development program for high school students to integrate into classrooms. There are four levels of the BAA: Future, Business, Leader, and America. Each level builds upon previous work and gets increasingly challenging to expand leadership skills and showcase talent.
In addition to the four different levels, each level covers these core activities and concepts: Service, Education, and Progress. Service focuses on activities that improves the school, area, businesses, community, and state. Education prepares members for corporate America and makes them more prepared for futures at college and at work. Progress explores the local, state, and national levels of FBLA-PBL and how they complement one another.
What is CSA?
The Community Service Awards recognizes FBLA members for their extraordinary commitment to community service. It has three levels of recognition, based on cumulative number of hours members contribute.
- Community – 50 hours
- Service – 200 hours
- Achievement – 500 hours
These hours build throughout an FBLA member’s career.
How to Get Started on BAA and CSA
Since advisers are no longer required to register members for BAA and CSA, members work on the activities at the adviser’s discretion. Once a student completes the levels, go to the national page and fill out the appropriate form to submit students for recognition

Don’t miss your time to shine this year by helping local schools charter or reactivate local chapters in your area! From the Chapter Planning Guide, the Local Recruitment of Chapters Award “recognizes chapters that charter or reactivate FBLA and Middle-Level chapters.” By receiving this award, you’ll be awarded at all of our conferences. Here are some ways you can get local schools excited about FBLA:
- Visit local middle schools and get them excited about the competitions, networking opportunities, and community service work FBLA does. It’s proven that students involved at the middle level thrive in high school.
- Check the Georgia CTSO website for schools that have recently deactivated chapters and find ways you can help reactivate and partner with those schools.
- Charter a chapter! You can read more about the benefits and how to charter by checking out this article on starting a chapter.
