As the business side of the country continues to evolve, more qualities are being implemented into the youth of America. FBLA, also known as Future Business Leaders of America, has played a major role in the evolution of certain qualities implemented into the youth. A major role in FBLA is contributed by FBLA Officers at the chapter and state level. Let’s meet the special roles of Officers. These are some of the most important roles. A president shows qualities of a leader, represents a team, prepares proper documents, like agendas, calls special meetings, keeps the team in touch, and keeps the team on track. Here’s an example of the president conducting a meeting with his fellow officers. A vice president may conduct a meeting in the absence of the president, oversee all committees, and assist the president for any necessary task. In this scene, you can see the vice president having a discussion with the president about important dates and events. A secretary can provide the president with an agenda, prepare and read all minutes of meetings, read communications at meetings, handle general correspondents of the chapter, keep track of attendance, and record votes when taken, as shown in this scene. A treasurer acts as custodian of chapter funds, keeps accurate, up to date financial records, assist in fundraising activities, and prepares a report for each meeting. Ultimately, a great team comes with shared responsibilities. Team building is an important aspect of having an efficient team. Through many activities, communication is an essential part of a team. In this activity, one person is blindfolded and must be led through the maze with the help of a teammate conveying the message. Along with team building, a program of work is part of the effectiveness of a chapter. The process of building a program of work begins with planning out each month accordingly. This includes events, meetings, activites, and the like. Then the team proceeds with planning out specific dates, sometimes subject to change. By the end, the final copy of the program of work is created by the secretary and team. After everything that the officer team has accomplished, they can now maximize their abilities as a team. We hope that you found this video educational and intriguing, and now have a better understanding of the importance of the CTSO Officers.
