FBLA-PBL 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 conferencemgr@fbla.org.
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.
