SBLC Balances Due:
As of today, there are 41 schools who have not paid their SBLC invoices in full. On June 14, when amounts will have been 90 days after invoices were issued, any unpaid balances are subject to a 10% late fee. Please check with your bookkeeper to be sure that your SBLC invoice has actually been paid (not just a purchase order sent). If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly.
NLC Universal Studios:
If you have friends or family in the area who are wanting to join the WA FBLA experience to Universal Studios on June 27, the order form is now available.

Orders must be placed by Friday, May 19, at 5 p.m.
NLC Champ Camp:
We are excited to confirm that we are offering three NLC Champ Camps this year! Champ Camp is an opportunity for professional competition training, review of standards and competencies, and real time practice.
If your students are in a presentation event (like Business Ethics, Public Speaking, American Enterprise), they should come ready to present as if it were NLC. They will get an opportunity to present and receive professional feedback and coaching.
If your students are in an online test, we will review their performance on competencies and review testing strategies, best resources, and they will get to experience the practice for performance events.
If your students are in an event with a secret topic (Impromptu, Entrepreneurship, etc.), we will have fresh new topics along with the opportunity for them to practice and receive feedback.
Champ Camps will be:
June 1 – Eastpoint Church, Spokane
June 2 – Central Washington University, Ellensburg
June 5 – Fife School District, Fife
To sign up for Champ Camp, you should use this form. To be sure we are prepared for your competitors, be sure they all sign up!
Please note: we have applied for clock hours for advisers who participate. We are very hopeful that they will be approved – as this is also a great professional development exercise for teachers and will help with future competition prep for your students!
