Greetings New York State FBLA members and advisers, my name is Gillian Mathews, your State President. On behalf of the entire State Officer Team, I’m excited to welcome you to the 2017-2018 membership year!
As we begin the new year, it is time for all members to “Build Your Bridge to Success”. The State Officer Team has been working hard to create one of the best years New York FBLA has ever seen. We are dedicated to helping New York set achievable goals, give back to our state charity, Feeding America, and network with members from across the state. Together, we can pave the way for leadership by strengthening our membership, community outreach and engagement, and career development. However, in order for our programs and state to be successful overall we need your help. Each and every member of New York State FBLA is here with the passion to explore the opportunities this organization has to offer and lead our state to achieve great things.
FBLA has been an extremely important part of my life for the past four years. I have had the opportunity to travel to amazing new places, meet and connect with new people from across the nation and even compete and campaign at regional, state and national levels. I urge you all to work towards contributing to our great organization. I wish you the best of luck for another successful year!
On behalf of the 2017-2018 State Officer Team, I hope your hard work drives you towards accomplishing your goals. I look forward to seeing our membership grow and our existing members develop into business leaders of tomorrow. Let’s make this a year to remember!
Best of Luck,
