Attention FBLA members of the Eastern Region!!! Fall is in swing and so is FBLA. I am excited to share with you some important upcoming events and information. 

Currituck County High School will be hosting the Regional Competitive Events Conference on January 6th. I hope you are deciding on what you would like to compete in this year and preparing for it. There are many competitive events! Registration has been sent out to advisers, so please start sending those in as soon as you can. We are excited to be hosting RCEC and are ready to see all of the Eastern Region members show off their FBLA skills. 

There will be a Statewide Community Service Day on February 21, 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. I am excited to further this sister chapter and see what the outcome will be. If you would like to be apart of a sister chapter, please contact me via email and we can discuss your sister chapter options then. 


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.
