How can we get Professional Division Members involved?

Here's how you can involve Professional Division members:

  • Invite your PD's to attend your local chapter meetings.

  • Ask them to speak at a local chapter meeting.

  • During FBLA-PBL week, host a reception for your adviser(s) and your PD members or have a special dinner / reception for PD members that have exceeded your expectations during the year.

  • Involve PD members with committees - be a "coach" for fund-raising or community service.

  • Encourage PD's to attend the SLC - offer for the chapter to pay their way (hotel & / or registration) if they work at the SLC (event administrator, judge, leadership development coordinator, PD fund-raising, event coordination, etc.) contact Robbie McDonald for more info on involving your PD's at the SLC.

  • Encourage a PD member from your chapter to run for a professional Division office and be a part of the state committee.

  • Ask PD members to be coaches for members participating in oral and competitive events, as well as the preparation of reports, for the SLC.

  • Use your PD members to form an advisory committee for your chapter. This can lead to networking, involving other business, community service efforts, etc.

  • Nominate an outstanding PD member for the "Distinguished Professional Division Member" award. More information on this award can be found in Section 07 State Awards Program in theĀ State Handbook

  • Submit an outstanding PD member for the "Business Person of the Year" award. More information on this award can be found in Section 07 State Awards Program in theĀ  State Handbook
