Who we are:
Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is the largest career student business
organization in the world. As a nonprofit education association with a quarter million
students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields, we are a high
school chapter. Our club operates the Meghan Beeler Cáfe, holds semi-monthly club
meetings, offers an opportunity to attending the State Leadership Conference in
Indianapolis, and hosts and attends various special events.
FBLA mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working
relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.
Membership is for grades 9-12 (deadline 9/19/19). Each member pays a membership
fee of $22 which covers local, state, national dues, and a club T-shirt.
Meghan Beeler Café:
Saint Joseph High School has a unique opportunity to gain skills in the operations of a
business with the Meghan Beeler Cafe. All members are required to work in the café
each semester. Students are given the opportunity to learn more about tracking cash
flow, inventory, pricing, and sales training.
During the month, we typically will have two meetings that will focus on learning about
business and leadership. Activities have included a resume workshop, mock interviews,
Shark Tank discussion, game night, Ted Talks, Kahoots, Trips to the Pacers, Purdue
and Subaru to name a few.
State Leadership Conference:
Each club member will be considered for participation along with students from all over
the state to participate in competitive events which include tests, presentations, and
performances that allow members to demonstrate both academic and leadership skills
in business related areas. Due to limitations on the number of members that may
attend, those selected will have established a proven track record of commitment to the
organization through attending meetings and working in the café and other events.
