Anaheim, California

The 2017 National Leadership Conference (NLC) will draw thousands of future business leaders to Anaheim, California as we celebrate FBLA-PBL's 75th anniversary! Members come to test their knowledge and skills through competitive events, share successes, and learn new ideas about shaping their careers through workshops and exhibits. This four-day conference is considered the pinnacle of the FBLA-PBL experience, especially for those running for national office. Members also have the opportunity to attend the Institute for Leaders (IFL). This high-energy, intensive, two-day seminar is a focused, leadership experience for state and local chapter officers, members, and advisers.

More information coming soon!
