Dear Parent or Guardian:
Your child is currently enrolled in a business technology course at Liberty Middle School. Business technology courses prepare your child for today's workplace through education of leadership skills, career exploration, development of character, fostering citizenship and building self-confidence. An integral component of this course is the co-curricular student organization, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). Students will apply and practice concepts learned in class by participating in our FBLA chapter. It is strongly recommended that students join FBLA to maximize their learning experience and gain a competitive edge. Dues are $35.00. This will also include the cost of their shirts. Please have dues paid no later than Thursday, August 31, 2017.
What is FBLA?
FBLA is the premier organization for students preparing for careers in business. Through FBLA, members gain the competitive edge for career and/or college success. By taking advantage of the many programs FBLA offers, students acquire the skills that set them apart from the average high school student. Members learn through participating in a variety of activities that help them build their skills, while contributing to the improvement of the community in which they live, their school, and their chapter.
What does FBLA do?
FBLA provides the business leaders of tomorrow with the necessary skills to successfully compete in the job market, pursue postsecondary education, or manage personal skills. Members learn how to lead and participate in group discussions by engaging in practical problem solving and decision-making activities. FBLA members learn the value of competition through directed competitive events.
