This year all divisions of FBLA-PBL will have the opportunity to embark on a journey to Step Up To The Challenge at a National Fall Leadership Conference (NFLC). FBLA-PBL members are educated through professional development and career planning workshops. Great keynote speakers for the opening and closing general sessions will get your blood flowing and get you motivated to be involved with this amazing organization. Visit the exhibits for information about universities and colleges, new technologies, and fundraising opportunities.

Not a registered member? That is okay! Attendees of an NFLC do not have to be a registered member. This allows a great opportunity for recruiting students. Bring along your friends and let them experience just a ounce of what FBLA-PBL can offer them.

Attending an NFLC will give you the chance to network with members, advisers, national staff, and national officers before the year has ended. The items you learn and take away from a NFLC will change you and your local chapter. For many FBLA-PBL members, the NFLCs are a convenient and affordable way to experience much of the education and excitement of a National Leadership Conference (NLC) closer to home. These cities are full of history and excitement; make sure to plan a little time to go exploring as well.
The NFLC’s are located in three exciting cities this year:

Washington D.C. - Nov. 7-8, 2014

Minneapolis, MN - Nov. 14-15, 2014
