Attention Members: California FBLA is embarking on a new program to catalogue the successes of our members when they venture off to post high school education/training. If you would like to be a part of this brand new program, please email State President Cameron Khansarinia at email@example.com. Please send Cameron your name, high school attended, year of graduation, whether you were in FBLA in Middle School, number of years in FBLA, and the name of the university/college/trade school you will attend in the fall. We are interested in documenting the achievements of our members and to encourage the future participation of new members. Congratulations on your success!
