Projects in FBLA help a local chapter and individuals to gain recognition at a state- and nation-wide level and to expand the goals, knowledge, and activities of both the chapter as a whole, and the individuals of that chapter. In the chapter projects, it is the students who take the lead, working together to accomplish their goals, no matter how small the chapter may be. The projects our chapter participate in include the Local Chapter Annual Business Report (LCABR), the Government Awareness Project (GAP), the Program of Work (POW), and the Gold Seal Award of Merit, which is included in the LCABR. The Individual State Projects include the Financial Literacy, the Green Initiative, the Leaders in Action, and the Professional Profile projects.
