Quick Tips

  • Schedule a brief FBLA-PBL intro at each meeting.
  • Co-sponsor campus events to gain campus-wide recognition. Supply FBLA-PBL information at each event.
  • Ask key people to give recommendations of possible members and leaders.
  • Do not expect a person to come to a meeting in a room full of people they do not know. Offer to meet the student somewhere and go to the meeting together. Help him/her network with others in the organization.
  • Attend activity or club fairs. Set up a recruitment booth.
  • Feed potential members. Students love free food!
  • Recruit by interest. If there are people interested in an issue, recruit them to head up a program on that issue.
  • Go to classrooms, talk to students about the organization, and invite them to attend an event.
  • Hold meetings and events in comfortable, visible, hospitable places.
  • Prepare an elevator speech about the advantages of joining FBLA-PBL.
  • Snap photos at meetings and events and put together an online scrapbook for prospective members.
  • Print business cards for members. Include an open invitation to meetings and space for members to write their own name and number
