Eastern region members….RCEC is less than a month away, and I hope you are as excited as I am! 

Currituck County High School will be hosting the Regional Competitive Events Competition on January 6th. Since registration has come and gone, I hope all of you are beginning to prepare for your event. Currituck High is excited to be hosting the Regional Competitive Events Competition, and we can’t wait to see our members show off their FBLA skills! 

There will be a Statewide Community Service Day on February 24, 2018. This is a day where chapters across the state will decide what they would like to do for community service within their community and send a report to me on what they did. It will be decided who contributed the most to their community as well as the greatest number of participants. If you are chosen, you will receive preferred seating at the State Leadership Conference in March. Please consider participating in this event and start thinking about what your chapter could do to contribute. 


Goals for this Year

As you may know from previous posts, one of my main goals for this year is to implement sister chapters into the region. This is where chapters will work together in order to help chapters grow. I am glad to say that Moyock Middle School and Currituck County High School have been doing this sister chapter. We are working together in order to plan RCEC.

Another one of my goals this year was to have more communication this year within our region. There is a Remind 101 access code for all local advisers within the region; this way we will all have a more effective and efficient way to communicate. Members, your advisers can inform you of what is sent out in the Reminds during your local chapter meetings. The code for Remind 101 should have been sent out to all advisers per Julie West. 

Reactivated/Chartered Chapters 

If you are interested in creating a new chapter or reactivating one, please contact me or feel free to visit the national website to fill out a Charter Organization Packet. It is always exciting for the region to have new chapters, advisers and members. 

I would like to say that we have three chartered or reactivated chapters this year. These chapters are Currituck County High School, Camden Middle School, and Ayden-Grifton High School. When you see these chapters at RCEC, please give them a warm welcome to our region!
