This form must be submitted annually by the chapter adviser for CDE review and approval by the CA FBLA State Adviser in order for the chapter to have CA FBLA affiliation for the new school year.
If yours is a brand new chapter, the next step is to complete a Chapter Organization Packet (COP) with the National Center. Go here: https://www.fbla-pbl.org/ and select "Start a Chapter" for either high school or middle school. The chapter will need to pay the $25 charter/re-activation fee to the National Center as part of finishing the COP prcess.
Once you have both an approved chapter charter from the national office and confirmation from Molly Anderson, your CA FBLA State Adviser, the adviser will be able to enter student names as members in the nationl database, pay the associated fees, and register for events held by California FBLA for the 2020-21 school year.
