PRESIDENT'S
MESSAGE

By FBLA-PBL Professional Division National President Alan Rzepkowski

Dear FBLA-PBL Community,
As your 2019-21 National Professional Division President, and also on behalf of
Vice President Shannon McConnell and Secretary/Treasurer Travis London, I'd
like to welcome you to our new membership year and wish you well as we aspire
to meet the new challenges we are all facing.
What an extraordinary and unprecedented experience we have all been a
part of these past six months. All four divisions of our association pivoted in the
blink of an eye in March from competitive events, state conferences, and officer
elections to the unusual circumstances of remote learning; video performances;
virtual conferences and meetings; and social distancing. Without hesitation,
though, our association board and staff, advisers, student members, and
professional members rapidly adjusted to our new reality.
As we look forward to the 2020-21 FBLA-PBL and Professional Division
membership year, there are still many challenges we are facing, but our Board, staff, advisers, officers,
and members continue to find alternatives to what was once normal and to succeed in serving our
membership. Our Professional Division members will also continue to serve an important role this
year in assisting, mentoring, and training our FBLA-PBL members as they lead local and state chapters,
prepare for our competitive events program and conferences, and build our association.
Even with this mission for our division members, this will be a year of transition for our national
officer team and our division members for reasons that have nothing to do with the pandemic. In June,
the National Board of Directors passed a motion to establish a Business Leaders Network committed
to supporting the mission of Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL). The
network would engage former members and other "non-student" friends of the association to support
the mission, programs, and services of the organization. A task force has been working on this alumni
and professional network initiative since 2017 and it is now ready for implementation after the 2020-21
membership year.
This transition includes maintaining the focus of our division as a resource-generating division
with a vision of giving back to the association. This includes both FBLA-PBL alumni and other involved
business professionals who believe in the mission and impact of our association on our future leaders.
We will be increasing our focus on retaining and engaging our high school and college members that
have graduated from our program and entered the business world. We will also continue to encourage
the involvement of business professionals and advisers who have always assisted our student members in
their transition from future business leaders to the next generation of successful leaders.
As this transition plan and new direction is refined and prepared for implementation over the next
several months, we will continue to seek input from all stakeholders and share with you
the results of these discussions and the road map that will be implemented next August.
Thank you for your involvement as a FBLA-PBL member and/or Professional
