Bringing More Future Business Leaders of America Middle Levels to Louisiana Initiative

Forming a club is a great way to initiate action. By following a few simple steps students can bring a community to life and evoke a real change.

It is my pleasure to invite students to join Future Business Leaders of America! FBLA is a national association of nearly a quarter million students interested in becoming more successful in the business world.

If there are many clubs at school, that doesn't mean students will have to give up interest in other organizations that already exist. Even if clubs share similar principles in service or competitive events yet several students prefer to join a new club, advisors should reconsider the value of proposed club. By forming an official organization that really interests students, students are demonstrating true leadership qualities. For students planning to apply to a selective school, membership in an academic club is a necessity. And when that special application time comes, college officials will be looking for activities that make students stand out and long time club involvement is commended.

How can students start a club at school? This step-by-step guide will show how to start a club right from the beginning to the end including the extra things that will help a student's chances to get their club approved.

1) Find a Club Advisor

2) Find Some Reliable Students

3) Discuss approval with school commissioner

3) Plan How the Club Will Run

4) Get Others to Join
