Key Facts

FBLA - What is it?

Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is a student-led organization that is an integral part of the business, information technology, and entrepreneurship education instructional program. FBLA offers enhanced opportunities to develop leadership and career skills to students who have an interest in the American Free Enterprise System.

FBLA chapters are located throughout Nevada. These schools are part of a system of more than 6,000 local chapters throughout North America, Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS) worldwide and growing base of chapters internationally.

FBLA is important to the individual student, the school, local businesses, and the community. In the past 30 years, FBLA members have raised over $20 million dollars in partnership with the March of Dimes.

FBLA has approximately 210,000 high school members and another 35,000 collegiate and middle school members worldwide, making it the largest and oldest student business organization in the world.

Who can belong to this energetic organization?

Any student who is has been enrolled in a business or business-related class can become a member of FBLA. In classrooms throughout the country, students and teachers form their own chapters, elect officers, and develop a Program of Work providing business leadership opportunities for student members. Because FBLA is a co-curricular Career Technical Student Organization endorsed by the U.S. and Nevada Department of Education, teachers serve as chapter advisers integrating classroom learning and guiding chapter operations.

FBLA chapters are funded through a partnership of student, parent, school-based enterprises and community efforts along with public support through federal Perkins funds and state Career Technical Education grants.

Why is FBLA important to the business community?

FBLA members are encouraged to actively involve themselves in school and community projects. By doing so, they not only help improve their communities, but each member develops business leadership skills, strengthening their confidence and improving their understanding of the American Enterprise System. These experiences help FBLA members achieve their personal career goals.

Some FBLA chapters operate actual functioning businesses as part of their FBLA experience. This early experience in business and entrepreneurship makes education more hands-on and relevant and equips students with understanding, knowledge, and appreciation for the hard work, leadership, personal initiative, and teamwork it takes to be successful in business and in life.

Why are FBLA activities important to your school?

FBLA chapter activities contribute substantially to the primary purpose of school-- to develop well-educated citizens who have developed self-confidence, self-esteem, leadership ability and an understanding of the American Enterprise System. FBLA chapters provide a "showcase" for student achievement and progress, reflecting favorably on teachers, FBLA advisers, and school administration at both local and state levels.

Leadership

The Nevada FBLA Chapter was granted to the Nevada Department of Education in 1971 by the FBLA-PBL, Inc. National Board of Directors.

The heart of FBLA-PBL in any state is the combined leadership and service of local teachers and students who are advisers, chapter officers, and members of the organization. Together with the support of school administration, districts, and school boards, FBLA is a vital component of a school’s strategy for preparing graduates to be successful in the world of college and careers.

Board of Trustees

Meet Our Board of Trustees >

The Nevada FBLA Board of Trustees is the policy-making body of the Foundation composed of dynamic leaders and key stakeholders representing both industry, education, and community leadership. The Board includes alumni, higher education representatives, executives, the State Chair from the Nevada Department of Education, State President, and the Executive Director. The Board of Trustees works to ensure the success of the Nevada FBLA-PBL mission and works with and provides support to State Officers, State Staff, and Local Advisers.

Management Team

Meet Our Management Team >

The Nevada FBLA-PBL state staff works on the day-to-day operations of the organization, including conference and event logistics, financial management, marketing and communications, membership services, state officer leadership program, and technology infrastructure. They also work closely with the Board of Trustees, FBLA-PBL National Center, Nevada Department of Education, State Officers, and local advisers to help local schools build premier business and leadership programs.

State Officers

Meet Our State Officers >

The Nevada FBLA-PBL State Officer Team is comprised of students from all across the state. Members have the opportunity to run for a state officer position at the State Business Leadership Conference in the spring and serve one year terms, from April to April. State Officers represent the student voice of the organization with the State President serving on the Board of Trustees and Board of Advisers. State Officers develop an annual strategic program of work based on the strategic priorities of National and Nevada FBLA-PBL and serve throughout the year to improve program quality and opportunities for members throughout Nevada. The State Officers participate in a rigorous leadership development program and earn college elective credit during their year of service. State Officers work with local chapter officers to plan conferences, visit chapters, and expand membership opportunities for students throughout Nevada.

Local Advisers

Local advisers are an integral part of FBLA-PBL. Local advisers are high school teachers, usually teaching in the field of business, accounting, design, information technology or marketing. These teachers take on the dedicated task of serving as advisers for their school’s chapters, which includes organizing members, determining logistics of events and competitions, integrating FBLA and classroom concepts, and overall supporting the efforts and goals of their school and members. Based on school district policy, several FBLA chapters also utilize co-advisers (other school staff, alumni, parents, and industry volunteers) to support the local chapter program of work. Teachers interested in becoming a chapter adviser do not need to have prior FBLA-PBL experience. Advisers receive annual professional development training through Nevada FBLA and additional adviser mentors are available to assist.

Local Chapter Officers

Chapter officers are key to an exceptional FBLA-PBL experience. FBLA is intended to be a student-led organization and chapter officers serve at the forefront of connecting FBLA opportunities to student needs and college and career goals. Chapter officers are members of their local chapters who are elected/selected each year to serve their fellow members. Once elected, the officers work together along with their local adviser(s) and State Officers to ensure that the goals of the chapter are fulfilled. Becoming a chapter officer is a great honor and a great opportunity to both develop and apply business leadership skills in a real-world environment. While the structure of each chapter is different, chapter officers usually include a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and parliamentarian. Chapter officer teams often specialize positions to serve in specific roles like vice president of membership, vice president of service, vice president of finance, vice president of competition, vice president of public relations, and more.
