New This Year:
Advisers may schedule single and double rooms only.
Students may be scheduled for single, double, triple, and quad rooms.
No chapter is required to share.
Chapters must account for all students and guest/chaperones on the SLC
registration list by listing them on the Plan A or Plan B lodging forms.
If students are not lodging, they must be listed on the "commuter form."
PA FBLA will not automatically assign students to share rooms for
advisers and students. PA FBLA staff will no longer search the
housing database looking for schools to share sleeping rooms. PA
FBLA will accept pre-arranged room sharing made between advisers of
schools wishing to share.
The following guidelines must be followed:
1. Schools wishing to share must be pre-determined and agreed
upon by all chapters BEFORE submitting the lodging forms.
2. Advisers of sharing schools must communicate with each other to
determine how shared rooms will be organized BEFORE submitted lodging
3. The sharing information must be entered in the SPECIAL
NEEDS/ROOM SHARING CONFIGURATIONS text box on both/all sharing schools
4. Each chapter must submit its own lodging forms.
5. Without the above documentation, sharing will not be permitted.
6. Chapters will be billed for the actual number of individuals in
a room as shown on the Financial Summary/invoice.
7. Lodging placement will be determined by the latest first
submission date of those schools that are sharing.

How to Start/Reactivate an FBLA
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.
