Triangle-East Region

Rachel Cobb

Triangle East Region Vice President




Success comes in a lot of ways, but it doesn’t come with money and it doesn’t come with fame. It comes from having meaning in your life, doing what you love, and being passionate about what you do. That’s having a life of success!



February is National CTE Month!

During the month of February, CTE is celebrated and recognized all across the country. Here are some ideas on how to get involved:

  • Talk to local business owners and make sure they know the value of CTE.
  • Ask local business people to speak to your chapter about things such as business management, the importance of career-focused education, and available careers in the business world.
  • Share your favorite thing about CTE on Instagram and tag @ncfbla_tri_east so I can see!

Dates to Remember 

  • Community Service Day: On February 24, 2018, NC FBLA will have a state-wide community service day. Local chapters are encouraged to participate in community service projects, such as cleaning a park, collecting and donating food to first responder agencies, spending time with elderly people in a nursing home, etc., and email pictures and summaries to
  • State Leadership Conference (SLC): The annual State Leadership Conference (SLC) will be held at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro March 19-21, 2018. This is where all winners at the regional level will continue in their competitive events, and others can enter new state-level competitions. Several informative and interactive workshops will also be offered. Hotel registration forms can be found under the ‘Documents’ tab at this website.

Important News

  • A Remind 101 account has been set up for each region by our wonderful state president. Advisers have the necessary information. Advisers, please join the remind as soon as possible and encourage chapter presidents to do the same.

Chapter of the Month

February’s Chapter of the Month is my local chapter, Fike High School. My awesome chapter has shown me nothing but full-fledge support during my campaign process and term as a state officer. I could not have set into action the service projects our region has completed or organized RCEC without them, and I, TRULY, mean that! We may be a small chapter, but we are a mighty chapter, and it is all thanks to my wonderful members and advisers at Fike! Thank you Fike FBLA for all you have done! I love you guys!

Thank You Triangle East Region!

I have been so honored to have served as your Region Vice President for (almost) the past year. I simply cannot express how much it means to me that you all trusted me enough to lead our region into the challenges and milestones we have faced over the last several months. I have enjoyed meeting so many of you and seeing all the wonderful things you have accomplished. You will continue to achieve monumental success without me, but I have loved every minute of my time spent with you all. Although my term as a state officer is almost over and I will soon begin a new chapter of my life, I do not see this as a “good-bye;” I see this as a “see you later” and a “thank you.” Thank you for allowing me to be your Region Vice President and for teaching me so much about who I am as a leader and a person. I WILL see you all later.

Signing off one last time,


Rachel Cobb
