September: Hello Fall!



This is my September mood because the 22nd is the first day of fall! AND, we have exciting news! One BIG thing to remember this month: Start picking out the event you wish to compete in at RCEC. If the event is not offered at RCEC, don’t worry! There will be plenty of things to keep you busy! 

Hard Work Pays Off!

I am at a loss for words! Since August 1st, our region has welcomed 6 NEW CHAPTERS!!!! This could not have been done without your hard work and determination. A big shout out to the following:

Crossroads Art and Science Early College 

Southeast Middle School

Pilot Mountain Middle School

Alleghany High School

Wilkes Central High School

Avery County High School

I can not wait to serve you all this 2018-19 FBLA season!

Time to Get Members!

School has started back and it’s time to start recruiting members for your local FBLA chapters. Below are a few tips and tricks to getting new members. Membership registration is due by October 20th!!

  1. Have a business professional come and talk to your class about what it is like working in the business world. Let this conversation be the gateway to a conversation about FBLA.
  2. Use your social media platforms to show your friends how must you enjoy being in FBLA and how many opportunities there are for networking and growth.
  3. Set up a meeting during school hours for those interested in learning more about becoming a member.
  4. RECRUIT RECRUIT RECRUIT! Let’s make this year a year of growth.

2018-2019 Northwest Regional Goals


I want to use this year to truly grow and better the Northwest Region. Here are some of the things I would like to see happen!

  1. Add five or more chartered or reactivated chapters to our region – We did it!
  2. Increase our membership within current chapters – 
  3. Have 15 or more members compete at the Regional Competitive Event than last year – 
  4. Have 30 or more members compete at the State Leadership Conference than last year – 
  5. Use forums such as Remind 101 and email to get current information out and received by all members- We did it!

In addition to these goals I have a personal one for myself – My goal as your state officer this year is to attend at least 5 Free Food Friday meetings. I want you all to recruit as hard as you can this year! Let’s get some new or reactivated chapters!

As a state officer it is my job to stay connected to the chapters and members. This form will also ask if you are requesting a Free Food Friday visit. Remember, you must have helped in the activating or reactivating of a local chapter in order to be eligible for one of these meetings. 

Northwest VP Visit Request

Once you have put in a visit request, I will get back to you via email and a time and date can be set up!
