FBLA National Conferences
FBLA-PBL offers national meetings that promote leadership development. FBLA-PBL conferences are a great place to reach our audience face-to-face. For information on how to exhibit or present a workshop, contact Robert Smothers, Conference Manager, by e-mail at email@example.com.
National Leadership Conference (NLC)
FBLA-PBL members have the competitive edge, as the best and brightest of FBLA and PBL convene to compete in leadership events, share their successes, and learn new ideas about shaping their career future through workshops and exhibits. This four-day conference is considered the pinnacle of the FBLA-PBL experience, especially for those running for national office. FBLA-PBL has forged partnerships with industry leaders to underwrite competitive events and scholarships for students achieving national ranking.
Many of our state winners from SLC go to represent North Carolina and compete at NLC. Refer to www.fbla-pbl.org for current dates and location.
National Fall Leadership Conference (NFLC)
The FBLA National Fall Leadership Conference is an excellent opportunity for students to attend a national conference. FBLA members and advisers from many states in several regions will be participating at the conference. All active local chapters should receive registration materials directly from the national office. If your chapter did not receive conference materials, contact the National Conference Director, Richard Bowen, firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of the information about NFLC can be viewed from the home page tab for NFLC at the national website. Refer to the calendar of activities for location and dates. Information about the conference is also posted on the national website www.fbla-pbl.org.
Local chapters can make national headlines by submitting articles for FBLA's national publication, Tomorrow's Business Leader. Many exciting and innovative activities take place on the local level. These activities can receive national recognition by having them published in the national publication. An electronic form is currently located on the home page at www.fbla.org to submit your chapter spotlights.
FBLA-PBL members may choose to participate in the following programs. For additional information, refer to the Chapter Management Handbook mailed to all active chapters in August, or call the National Center (1-800-325-2946).
