Effective state and national programs depend upon membership support and growth. Continued membership growth makes the expansion of services and materials possible. Recognition is given to local chapters that have attained the greatest growth in membership.
    All active local chapters are eligible.
    Certificates and plaques are presented to the top five (5) chapters at the State Leadership Conference in the following membership events:
    • Largest Increase in Local Chapter Membership
    • Largest Local Chapter Membership
    • Largest Local Chapter Membership—Professional Division
    • Largest Percentage of Increase in Local Chapter Membership
    • Market Share (Largest Percentage of FBLA Members Based on School Enrollment)

    Official membership records are audited at the state office. An entry form is not required for recognition EXCEPT for the Market Share Award. For this award, chapters must submit official proof from the school’s 2018-2019 First Principal (P-1) Apportionment Report showing their official school enrollment. Recognition will be awarded based on chapter membership as a percentage of school enrollment. Check the State Leadership Conference Guide for submission instructions.
    The official date for membership awards is paid members as of March 1. 
    Membership is checked against the national record since dues are payable only on a unified basis.
    Note: Additional membership awards are available for recognition at the national level. Chapters may need to submit additional forms for verification. For details, check the Membership Awards page on the national website:
