Calendar of Activities

The calendar of activities is constantly being updated. It has been omitted from this manual to avoid any references to an outdated calendar. Please refer to the North Carolina FBLA website for the current calendar ( ).


Membership Classifications

Active membership in FBLA is available for:

  • high school students who are enrolled in at least one business course during the school year or who have already completed at least two business courses

  • middle school students who are enrolled in a business course during the school year or have completed one business course.

If your school has semester courses, an active member may be enrolled in a business course either first or second semester. Professional membership is automatic for local chapter advisers. We also have partnering opportunities that count as business courses.
Associate membership is available for those students who are not taking a business course this school year and have not completed two business courses, but who want to participate in FBLA activities by paying both state and national dues. Associate members may participate in committee work, school, and community/service projects. Associate members cannot participate in competitive events or hold office.

Career Clusters (click on the link for Career Clusters: Business, Finance and Information Technology ONLY)

Business courses approved for NC FBLA membership include Cluster Foundation or Enhancement courses located ONLY on pp. 5, 7 and 12 of the following document for Career Clusters in Business, Finance or Information Technology.

Partnering Opportunities

There are several programs (such as the National Academy Foundation or NAF) program that we list as "partnering opportunities" in our standard course of study.  We do not provide the curriculum, but we recognize those courses as contributing significantly to our standard course of study, and we allow students taking those courses to be active FBLA members.  Those partnering opportunities are listed on page 38 of the Standard Course of Study.
The following are external nationally recognized programs. The participants must be members of schools of these organizations and follow the curriculum requirements of these partnerships. NCDPI will not provide any curriculum materials for these programs.

• International Baccalaureate (IB) Business Management

• International Baccalaureate (IB) Information Technology

• National Academy Foundation (NAF) Academy of Finance

• National Academy Foundation (NAF) Academy of Information Technology
