Affiliation and Membership Reporting Resources
Each year, chapters complete the affiliation process to be an active chapter for the year. Applications are submitted via an online form and then reviewed by the California Department of Education for approval.
The Affiliation Guide below is a helpful resource for you and your school administration to understand the benefits of FBLA affiliation and a breakdown of the fee structure.Affiliation deadline:

Chapter Affiliation Agreement Form
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 an FBLA interest form found here: https://leadable.info/CAFBLA-Interest.
Once you have both an approved chapter charter from the national office and confirmation from the California Department of Education, the adviser will be able to enter student names as members in the national database, pay the associated fees, and register for events held by California FBLA for the 2022-23 school year.
As part of the affiliation process, you will need to contact your school district to get the district Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) and you may consult the following CalPads document for determining your CTE Course Codes; however, check with your site principal to be sure that the CalPads number you select for your courses matches the numbers being reported to the CDE by your school annually for those courses. CalPads CTE Course Codes Document. (updated 7-2022 for 2022-2023)
Do not register student names or pay affiliation fees on the national website's database until you have received confirmation of approval of annual affiliation by the CDE.
