NC FBLA Central Region

Welcome Central Region Advisers and FBLA Members! 


 Hello, Everyone!

The Central Region Competitive Events Conference is less than a month away!  Make sure you make note of all that your adviser has to say concerning your events, including test dates at your school. Be sure to study for all of your events!

Just a tip: If you are doing a performance event or production test, always read the information listed in the NC FBLA Competitive Events Program, especially the rubric. By studying the rubric, you will know exactly what the judges will be looking for in your event.


All members that are going to regionals should

updates.

Before the conference we will send you reminders, and during the conference we will send you important updates.

We will not be able to see your phone number, and your number will be deleted from the system on 12/10/14.

You will also be able to reply if you have any questions before or during the conference.


THIS YEAR’s REGIONAL SERVICE PROJECT

In past years, NC FBLA has collected canned food at all Regional Conferences, including our Regional Competitive Events. This year, each region in North Carolina will be collecting a different component of care packages that will be sent to war refugees in Syria. This is possible through a partnership between NC FBLA and World Vision, a nonprofit charity organization.
The Central Region will be collecting boxes/packages of latex gloves. 
Each care package will include 30 pairs of gloves. While you can buy boxes of 30 pairs at drug stores, Walmart, and other places, we have found that the best place to buy them is at Dollar Tree. There, you can buy three smaller packages of 10 pairs (like the package shown above.) Bring your service project items with you to the Regional Competitive Events Conference on December 6th, 2014. They will be collected at the registration table.
PLEASE REMEMBER ONLY LATEX GLOVES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Thank you in advance for your participation!

Every Friday from November 14th to December 5th, all advisers will receive editions of our adviser e-mail series!

These e-mails will contain tips and ideas that you can use in your local chapter and share with your members. 

The topics will be as follows:

Friday, November 14th- Introduction to E-mail Series

Friday, November 21st- How to Effectively Use Technology in Your Chapter

Friday, November 28th- How to Develop Chapter Relationships with Local Businesses

Friday, December 5th- How to Effectively Use Public Relations to Gain Chapter Visibility


Please go follow and promote our Central Region twitter page, @nccentralregion!


ATTENTION CHAPTER PRESIDENTS: Due to a lack of interest in the Regional Executive Council this year, we are unable to have Regional Council meetings as planned. However, you will still get e-mail updates related to your office if you already registered. If you have not already done so, all local chapter presidents should click here to sign up for this e-mail list. This link is for local chapter presidents only.
