The State Officer Team at the Orientation Meeting back in May.

Are you ready to stick with FBLA through an exciting upcoming year? I sure am! This year, we are looking to boost membership, utilize social media resources by publishing the SilverNotes Blog, create a FBLA Chapter Survival Guide, upload new videos, and so much more. Be on the lookout for the National Recap Video that will take you through the experience of FBLA Nationals in Orlando, Florida.

During this month, the officer team is working on writing up articles for the Back-to-School Newsletter. The newsletter is a great source of information that will introduce you to the different opportunities of awards and scholarships FBLA has to offer, conferences that will take place during year, and ways you can be involved as a member. Be sure to check it out!

If you want to keep updated on upcoming deadlines and information join the Nevada FBLA Facebook group or follow Nevada FLBA on Twitter. Don’t forget to keep checking our blog for more news.

In a final note, here is a sticky note reminder that I hope you will stick with:

Quote by Mother Teresa

I’ve always found that giving someone a word of encouragement can really be the motivation to get them up on their feet. However, it doesn’t always have to be words, it could be giving someone a hug, or simply showing a smile. Whatever it is, your actions have the power of influencing the people around you. Never forget that.


by Sean Lim, Vice President of Advocacy

The Fall Leadership Extravaganza, or FLX , is an unforgettable gathering of members from some of Nevada’s finest CTSOs all across the state. With one in Reno, Elko, and Las Vegas, FBLA members from all over the state of Nevada have the chance to come together for a truly life changing student leadership conference. With activities ranging from charismatic guest speakers to informative workshops to being able to speak and interact with the State Officers, there is always something to be taken away from the Fall Leadership Extravaganza.

FLX is presented by the Nevada DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, and HOSA State Officers, State Management Teams, and the Nevada Department of Education . It gives FBLA members the opportunity to network and interact with members of other CTSOs. Be prepared to meet new people, make new friends, and learn what it is like in other CTSOs.

The Fall Leadership Extravaganza gives members the opportunity to not only network with members from other CTSOs, but to also learn much more about their very own organization. The FBLA state officers will be available throughout the event and are excited to answer any questions members might have or to listen to any ideas that might help improve Nevada FBLA for the year to come. Be sure to take the chance to talk to members from other chapters for ideas on how to improve your own chapter.

This year’s workshop theme is “The Art of Public Speaking” presented by the State Officers of the various CTSOs. It is a chance for members to learn tips and tricks about this vital leadership skill. Topics ranging from body language, voice, and preparation will all be discussed and plenty of opportunities will be available to practice your newfound skills.

The Fall Leadership Extravaganza will take place during the following dates: October 17th in Las Vegas at Cashman Center, October 18th in Elko at the Elko Convention Center, and October 19th in Reno at the Grand Sierra Resort. Mark it on your calendar and we cannot wait to see you all there!
