Career and Membership Achievement Program (CMAP)

The Career and Membership Achievement Program (CMAP) is a comprehensive leadership and membership recognition program for college students. It utilizes PBL projects, goals, and programs to help college students develop their leadership and job skills, with a special emphasis on career development and preparation for the world of work. 

Members work independently through three integrated levels of the CMAP: 

Members may complete more than one level per year and must report and log their progress. Each level builds upon previous work, and your students receive recognition when they complete each level. Students must be members of the PBL division. Join today.


Service, Education, Progress: The Core Principles of the CMAP

Each level of the CMAP covers these core activities and concepts:

Service—Uncover the link between a local community and the success of business. Your members focus on activities that improve the member's school, area businesses, community, and state. 

Education—Understand business and the world of work. Your members focus on activities that prepare them for a successful career, develop an appreciation of entrepreneurship, and understand the benefits of lifelong learning. They will network with industry professionals and their peers and will confidently prepare for a successful future.

Progress—Explore the local, state, and national levels of FBLA-PBL and how they complement one another. Your members focus on activities that promote FBLA-PBL at the local, regional/district, state and national levels.
