Future Business Leaders of America
Future Business Leaders of America is the nation's largest student organization for individuals preparing for a career in business. Cadott's FBLA chapter has been active since 1963 Traditionally, students in grades 9-12 are eligible for membership. New this year, students in grades 7 and 8 are welcome to join and participate in local FBLA events.
FBLA's goals include preparing students for a useful career, developing competent, aggressive business leaders, and instilling confidence and self respect. These goals are applied throughout every FBLA event.
Cadott's FBLA chapter meets in room 220. Members are encouraged to become involved in leadership roles as committee chairs or in supporting roles as committee members.
FBLA proudly sponsors, organizes, and participates in:
- an annual installation/induction ceremony
- boss's day, administrative professionals, and national teacher recognition days
- a food drive and a blood drive
Chapter members also organize FBLA week activities and attend regional, state, and national conferences. In addition, members may demonstrate their business knowledge by competing in more than 60 business events in February at the Region I Regional Leadership Conference. Students who place in the top levels of their individual event may advance to the State Leadership Conference. First, second, and third-place state winners advance to the National Leadership Conference.
