The Status of Future Business Leaders of America Chapter Activities in the State of Pennsylvania--1967-1970.
Nagle, Alma Doris
To determine the status of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and the variety of activities that are carried on in the FBLA clubs which make up the Pennsylvania Chapter, questionnaires were sent to each chapter in the state, and interviews were held with one adviser and one student from each of the 16 regions in the state. Usable returns from 75 student representatives and 109 advisors plus the interview data revealed that: (1) More than half the chapters were located in schools with enrollments of 250-270 students; (2) Approximately 25 percent of the chapters used some listing or guide in planning program activities; (3) In addition to the requirement that students be enrolled in at least one business subject, several chapters also required that the student also be a business major and have a certain grade point average; (4) Activities carried out by the clubs included fund-raising, school service projects, and community service projects; and (5) It was generally believed that local school districts did not provide much assistance to the local clubs. Several recommendations are included. (SB)
