I can’t believe I’m sitting down to write my last regional post. It feels like just yesterday I was given the opportunity to be your state parliamentarian. Over the past year, I have had the chance to travel to Anaheim, St. Louis, and all over North Carolina. I was able to grow closer with the eight other girls on our officer team. The memories, friendships, and experiences I have gained over the last year are invaluable.

A huge thank you to my adviser, Mr. Metters, and our state adviser, Ms. Thomas, for all they have done. I wouldn’t be here without the two of them.


The most important time of the year is fast approaching! This year’s State Leadership Conference is held in Greensboro from March 19-21. We can’t wait to see you there! Here are some important reminders:

  • Bring blue jeans, closed toe shoes, and money for the March of Dimes dance
  • Any materials for your events: laptops, projectors, presentation materials, etc.
  • Proper attire for the conference, full dress code can be found here. This is extremely important for opening and closing ceremonies, as well as, during your competitive event and for workshops.

Be sure to be putting the finishing touches on your events! Practice, practice, practice! Practicing will give you the confidence you need to do great!

Don’t forget about NC FBLA’s Community Service Day! It is on February 24 this year. Be sure to take pictures, tell us a little bit about what you did, and give a percentage of your chapter that participated to your regional VP. The region with the highest attendance will have preferential seating at one of the ceremonies.

Here are some important dates to remember:

February 24: NC FBLA Community Service Day

March 19-21: State Leadership Conference in Greensboro, NC

And for one last time, if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me!
