Membership. New membership recruiting DVDs were sent to FBLA and PBL local chapter advisers
from the national office..

Please remember the following to ensure your school membership records are handled efficiently and
accurately:

      To enroll a returning member for the current membership year, look for the member name from
       the list and select the student year from the drop down menu before you check the box to enroll.
       Then move your mouse to check the box next to the student name.

      When enrolling new student members, make sure the first and last names are in the correct
       fields, and use proper uppercase and lowercase letters.

      Try to include as many students as possible on one invoice.

      Send documentation (hard copy of the invoice) with payment.

      If a correction needs to be made to the spelling of a student name, e-mail to
       membership@fbla.org.
