NC FBLA Eastern Region

Eastern Region Vice President

“Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.”- Oscar Wilde



Eastern region members….thank you for making RCEC a success by bringing your FBLA skills, enthusiasm, and professionalism to Currituck County High. I would like to thank all judges, chaperones, advisers, and special guests for attending our event. I would also like to congratulate all members that placed in their event. I wish all winners the best of luck at SLC in March.

–Please remember that the State Leadership Conference will be March 19-21 in Greensboro– I hope that all of you are working hard on preparing for the State Leadership Conference as it is always fun to compete, and even more fun to win! 

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. This Community Service Day is approaching very soon; so, please make sure you have decided on what you will be doing and get as many people within your chapter to participate.

I hope that all of you participated in FBLA-PBL Week during this past week. It is always fun and exciting to show off our organization. 

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. Between both chapters we were able to put together our Eastern Region Competitive Events along with the help of J.P. Knapp Early College. 

Another one of my goals this year was to have more communication 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. If you did not receive the code from Julie West please email me so you can join. 

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. We saw some of these new chapters at our RCEC which is fantastic, and I hope we will also see some of these chapters at the State Leadership Conference.
