Take a look at what the chapters in
NORTH DAKOTA are doing this month!
During the month of January, the FBLA members have started working toward completing their individual Business Achievement Awards. This month our members participated in their third professional dress day of the school year. We also held 50/50 drawing fundraisers at a couple home sporting events. Our high school members are looking forward to state competition in a couple months and have started preparations for that as well.
During the month of January we did concessions twice for boys and girls basketball games. We held a full chapter meeting on the 14th. An officer meeting was held on the 7th. We also got our events picked out for SLC.
The month of January has brought many challenges to the Divide County chapter, due to Co-Vid and working around weather related make-up athletic activities.
Chapter reports are continuing to be worked on along with the planning of FBLA week in February. The officer team has been busy putting together the CTE Celebration activities for the Champion Chapter Application and the Go for ND Gold Application. The March of Dimes pizza parties were sponsored for the seniors and 5th graders for raising the most money in their respective high school and elementary. The second place winners, the 7th grade had their ice cream sundae bar as well.
Fundraising has begun for the American Heart Association with information sent out to the school district and community. A bake sale and 50/50 was held at a boy’s basketball game.
Members are finalizing their events and getting their conference forms turned in.
We worked in the concession stands, coffee shop, hosted a meeting with supper and a work night. We had everyone who is going to state sign up for their events and start working on their BAAs. We also had an officer meeting to plan our FBLA Week.
During the month of January, the members of the Enderlin Chapter of FBLA held weekly practices for the Parliamentary Procedure team, continued to work on completing Business Achievement Award Levels, conducted a fundraiser for the American Heart Association, and sold 50-50 tickets at the girls’ basketball games.
Our chapter had concessions for a boys basketball game, we also had members bring bars and cleaned the gym when the game was done. We made enough money to pay for a meal at the state when we go. All members participated the best they were able.
We also have been working on projects and reports for State Competition.
We are all helping out on the Community Service Project where we are making the annual of all the graduating students for the Alumni Committee.
We had 2 chapter meetings one at the beginning of the month and the other towards the end to plan FBLA Week and work projects and BAA’s.
We also attended the Annual Emerging Leader’s Competition, in Valley City. We took 17 members and did quite well.
Our chapter members are deciding what to do for the state competition and getting ready by studying or working on projects.
The Lakota High School FBLA chapter held a Bagels for Babies fundraiser for the March of Dimes during finals week of the first semester, from January 6th – 12th, 2022. It was much appreciated and enjoyed by the staff and students that participated.
They will be holding another Bagels for Babies fundraiser for the March of Dimes in the 4th quarter of the school year.
Our Chapter members have taken on the responsibility of managing the Bear Shack for Larimore High School. The Bear Shack is open in the morning and at lunch. As of right now, the Bear Shack sells school supplies, snacks, hot and cold beverages, and breakfast items. FBLA members provide the workers, stock inventory, purchase products and manage the money box. The Bear Shack has given FBLA members an opportunity to demonstrate punctuality, dependability, supervising, money management and honest. The FBLA members that are upperclassmen are training the new middle-level members so they will be able to train other FBLA members in the future. We have continued with our FBLA Bingo once a month. This month our Bingo focus will be “How Well Do You Know The Class of 2022”?
The Mandan FBLA Chapter attended the Emerging Business Leaders Day at Valley City State University. Overall, the day was a great success with several students placing during the awards session.
This month was very eventful for MPCG FBLA! We started out the month with a meeting to discuss upcoming events. Each member was given raffle tickets to fundraise for the State Leadership Conference. Students were also allowed to sign up for hotel rooms and sign up for competitive events for the conference. Our chapter also aided in our community service project which was to help raise money for repairs at our local community library. The library is in need of over $57,000 in repairs. A former MPCG FBLA member offered to match up to $10,000 in donations for our project. Our chapter held a baked potato feed to fundraise for this cause which brought in over $2,000! Because of the scope of our project, it led to publicity on both WDAY Radio FM-93.1 and North Dakota Today on our local NBC station! To prepare for state competition, members traveled to Valley City University for Emerging Leaders Day and Mayville State University for Business Activities Day. The chapter also wrapped up registration for events for the state conference.
Red River High School FBLA had an eventful January! On the 15th and 16th we met to make tie blankets for the Community Violence Intervention Center (CVIC). The CVIC offers social services, help, and protection to members of the community facing domestic violence and abuse. They are always in need of donations, whether it be cash or items. We made ten two-layer tie blankets in soft, cute patterns! Throughout the month, we worked with our advisor to nail down events, registration, and the schedule for the State Leadership conference. We have a wide variety of events this year, and we are excited to complete our ‘Go for Bronze’ award as a chapter. Lastly, we met on the 31st to discuss details as a group, get on the same page, and get ready for the State Leadership conference in two months.
This month we have had a few chapter meetings, an officer meeting, picked SLC events, and started fundraising through selling Butterbraids.
State officer candidates finalized their applications and began working on their campaigns. Members continued working on their events for SLC.
Thank you to all of the Chapters who submitted their news!
