Attention. Eastern Region!!! We have some very important things coming up you won’t want to miss out! There will be a statewide community service day in February, RCEC in January and some important deadlines.

The Statewide Community Service Day will be on February 21, 2018. It is up to each chapter within the region to decide what they would like to do. After your chapter participates in February, I will need to receive a report from you. After then it will be decided who contributed the most and had the greatest number of participants, and if your chapter is selected you will receive preferred seating at SLC. Please consider participating in this event that will not only be in the eastern region, but also our state.

Our Regional Competitive Events Conference for the Eastern Region will be held January 6 at Currituck County High School. We cannot wait for all of you to come to Currituck and show off your skills in FBLA. Registration for RCEC should have been sent out to advisors, so please get that in as soon as you can.

As many of you will see, the sister/mentor chapter will be implemented into our region very soon. As you may know from my last post, this was my main goal for this year. So I am very excited to get this going in our region and I hope you are too!

Some important upcoming dates:

-Membership Deadline is October 20

-Applications for State and National Officer Candidates are due on November 1

-National Fall Leadership in Buffalo, New York is November 3-4

-National Fall Leadership in St. Louis, Missouri is November 10-11

-National Fall Leadership in New Orleans, Louisiana is November 17-18

-Regional Competitive Events for Eastern Region is January 6

-Statewide Community Service Day is February 24

 

I can’t wait to get things going in the Eastern Region, and let’s make for a great year full of FBLA!

Hello Eastern Region…

My name is Taylor McCarthy, and I attend Currituck County High School. I am your Eastern Region Vice President for 2017-2018.

This summer I attended the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California. It was my first time attending a national conference, and it was an experience I will never forget! During IFL (Institute for Leaders), I met many other state officers from across the country. Throughout the conference I watched competitors in the finals, spoke with national officers, attended workshops, and met many FBLA members from all over. All together Anaheim was a great experience and the perfect place to attend my first National Leadership Conference.

My main goal for the eastern region this year is to implement something called a sister chapter. This is where a more experienced and active chapter will mentor and guide a chapter that is just getting started or having trouble staying active. By implementing these into our region it will show the rest of the state how connected we are and that we are doing things to promote FBLA, as well as giving students the opportunities they deserve through FBLA. Another goal I have for this year is to create social media accounts for the eastern region. By doing this I can showcase chapters and their accomplishments through an account on Instagram. I can share important dates and information with the members through a Twitter or Snapchat account. These are my main goals for this year.

Some important upcoming dates:

-Membership for the 2017-2018 year began on August 1

-Applications for State and National Officer Candidates are due on November 1

-National Fall Leadership in Buffalo, New York is November 3-4

-National Fall Leadership in St. Louis, Missouri is November 10-11

-National Fall Leadership in New Orleans, Louisiana is November 17-18

 

I am excited to serve as your Eastern Region Vice President for 2017-2018 and ready for another great year full of FBLA!
