Parliamentary Insight Report

At our FBLA Executive Board Meetings, we use Parliamentary Procedure and Robert’s Rules of Order, which provide structure to the meeting to promote efficiency. All members and advisors attending the meeting are welcome to make motions and participate in the discussions. To do so, one must stand and address the chair. Once recognized, he or she is welcome to make a motion, saying, “I move that…” or share his opinion on the matter.  However, only the State Officers are permitted to vote on the motions however. With that in mind, all meeting attendees are encouraged to join the discussion and share their viewpoints on the agenda topics.

 

 

2005 National Leadership Conference Report

June 24th-27th we attended NLC in Orlando, Florida.  The state of South Dakota had around 80 students representing it.  We had some places winners who were recognized at OLI in Redfield. NLC was a great learning and experience and a great time because we learned more about FBLA and got to tour Disney.

Institute for Leaders Report

How many of you have been ridiculed at one point or another and did not know how to respond?  Well, as the keynote speaker of IFL would say, tell them to “Whoop, shut it down.”  This lesson set the positive tone maintained for the entirety of this incredible conference. 

We weren’t there solely for the friends and balmy weather, but also for the workshops and clinics.  The workshops attended were separated into three separate tracks.  All attendees participated in one, with Holly in the middle level, and Kindal, Lacie, and Theresa in the most advanced of the existing options. 
Not only was it an opportunity to acquire new leadership skills, but it also was an incredible networking opportunity.  The people the state officers met there were diverse and impressively talented.  We hope more people will attend the next Institute for Leaders so that they too can enhance their leadership skills and establish more contacts.

State Scrapbook  and Slide Show Report

The 2005 - 2006 South Dakota State FBLA scrapbook is starting its construction, being filled with all the memories we’ve had so far. The theme for the scrapbook is, “Unlock Your Potential”.  I ask that all the chapters submit pictures and articles to me as soon as possible.  Remember there is space in the book for everyone and it’s up to you to fill it. Please send the pictures to me as soon as possible so I have time to put them in the book.

State Newsletter Report

As this new academic year has begun, so too has the work on the newsletter that I promised last year.  The new format will be on Mac’s publisher program.  It is crucial that contact be established between myself and the local reporters.  The point of the state newsletter is to be an informative resource, letting each chapter know what the others are doing and plan to do.  This can only be accomplished if the reporters consistently update me on their chapter’s actions.  After the newsletter is completed, it will be transferred to a PDF format and put onto the state’s website.  I look forward to a year of success for South Dakota’s “FBLAers”.

Web Page Report

The website as much work to be done.  First of all, all the state officers need to get their web pages done.  Second, I’ll be working to re-format the website, so there will not be scroll buttons on the home page, and with my ideas and the ideas I have received from FBLA’ers I hope to make the website more interesting. On to a brighter note, there has been work done already to the website:  the state officer picture, correct dates for executive meetings, and the FBLA pledge has been added to the home page, so all FBLA’ers will be able to know it.  

Membership Recruitment Report

Report unavailable at this moment.

March of Dimes Report

FBLA’s main partnership is with the March of Dimes.  The March of Dimes is a national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing premature births and birth defects.  Over the last 30 years, the March of Dimes has had a successful partnership with FBLA-PBL.  In this time, FBLA-PBL has raised over $12 million for the March of Dimes and reached hundreds of thousands of young people with their health and mission messages.  This year most of the funds from South Dakota’s state fundraisers will be donated to the March of Dimes.
