How to Start/Reactivate an FBLA Chapter

Depending on grade levels, schools may start either an FBLA chapter (grades 9-12) or an FBLA Middle-level chapter (grades 5-8).

Click here for more information on how to start a Grades 9-12 FBLA chapter.

Click here for more information on how to start and FBLA Middle-level chapter (grades 5-8).

A business educator is preferred to serve as the primary chapter adviser, but a school administration approved faculty adviser from another discipline/administration area may serve as a chapter adviser.  Currently, FBLA advisers include business educators, math educators, English educators, science educators, counselors, and principals/assistant principals, among others.  PA FBLA will provide training for new advisers. 

Critical to the chapter's success will be an adviser who believes in:   the goals of FBLA; career development and leadership development opportunities as tools for future student success; community service to build school pride and community connections; competitive events as a vehicle to demonstrate student academic achievement; among others.
