Career and Tech Department Students are encouraged to participate/compete as an active member of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). This is an organization for business students. The purpose of FBLA is to prepare students for careers in business, entrepreneurial, or business-related fields. This organization prepares students for employment by promoting competent, aggressive business leadership, increasing understanding of American free enterprise, establishing career goals, encouraging scholarship, promoting efficient money management, and developing character and self-confidence. The activities encourage career development, civic service, economic education, community involvement, and business advocacy. We encourage all business students to join FBLA. Not only do we encourage joining FBLA because it is a great club offering experiences that will benefit the student in their college and/or professional careers, but also because the fundamentals of this organization are integrated into the business classroom. The dues to join this organization are $30 and due by August 26, 2016. Make checks payable to Arlington High School.
