Tools & Activities
PBL Education Partner Programs—Encourage your students to take part in FBLA-PBL’s national educational programs. These unique programs include chapter projects, leadership programs, fundraising initiatives, community service events, and skills-building curricula.
Conferences—From the local to the national level, FBLA-PBL conferences help members develop leadership, chapter management, and career skills, as well as build lasting networks and friendships. Learn more about the fall NFLC and the summer NLC. Contact your state adviser about your State Leadership Conference.
Community Service—Community service activities help chapters get involved in their communities. Many chapters sponsor activities to support the FBLA-PBL national service partner, the March of Dimes.
