November 15 is recognized by FBLA-PBL each year as American Enterprise Day. This date salutes and publicizes the American free enterprise system and teaches others about it. Chapters celebrate American Enterprise Day through a wide range of activities, projects, and festivities. This year Bates FBLA will be celebrating National Enterprise Day by hosting a luncheon on November 15, 2017. Bates FBLA will invite local businessperson to come and speak during the luncheon to explain Free Enterprise and explain the pros and cons of being a business owner. As a business student organization designated to communicate the free enterprise message, the celebration of this day provides a vehicle for interaction between FBLA members and the community.
