This year, all SLC competitive event testing, including objective and production tests, must be conducted online at your local school prior to the state conference using the same testing procedures as the regional conferences. Paper testing will not take place at the state conference.
The online testing window for all Tennessee FBLA chapters is Feb. 25-March 1, 2019 (closes at 5 p.m. CT each day).
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:
SLC Non-Competitive Opportunities for Students
Each chapter is encouraged to bring two (2) voting delegates to the state conference. Every voting delegate must be registered as a "voting delegate" to represent their chapter in the voting delegate sessions. Competitors with performances associated with their events are NOT allowed to be voting delegates.
This leadership development academy is for non-competing students only. In the leadership academy, students will learn strategies to develop their local chapter and engage their community while networking with Tennessee FBLA leaders of today and tomorrow. Each chapter is allotted up to five spots for this academy. The academy's content will be directed to freshmen, sophomore, and junior members.
The hospitality committee is the glue that holds the state conference together behind the scenes. Members of this committee will help prepare conference registration materials, welcome and escort judges to their assigned areas, serve as runners for the advisers working the competitive events, assist in setting up the opening and closing sessions, and assist the state adviser and other conference management staff as needed throughout the conference. This small group of students are the "go-to" crew for anything that needs a little extra attention or assistance during the conference. Students must apply to be a part of this team. Consider your current or potential chapter officers who are extremely responsible, mature and task-oriented for this role. The application can be found below. Chapter advisers will be notified once all applications have been reviewed and the strongest applicants have been selected to serve in this capacity. The application deadline is Feb. 8, 2019 by 5 p.m. CT.
