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 State Handbook¬†07 State Awards Program 15-16

  • Submit an outstanding PD member for the "Business Person of the Year" award. More information on this award can be found in State Handbook¬†07 State Awards Program 15-16
