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.
