The Professional Division of the Future Business Leaders of America - Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) supports and promotes FBLA-PBL, Inc., and its goals. Members support FBLA-PBL programs and serve as liaisons between the workplace and the classroom; mentor FBLA-PBL members to strengthen leadership and provide career counseling; and, keep members informed on current business trends. Established business professionals can help, teach, and encourage the rising generation of business leaders. Professional members give students the chance to work one-on-one with experienced leaders. Members receive The Professional Edge and other national publications. Anyone who has an interest in FBLA-PBL can become a Professional Division member—former members, employers, educators, FBLA-PBL advisers, parents, business people, and community supporters. Annual membership dues are only $25. Join today!

FBLA-PBL Board Announces Online NLC Event

2020 NLC in Salt Lake City, Utah
While we were hopeful for the ability to gather as a community in Salt Lake City, our present reality has led us to cancel the in-person NLC. While we make this decision with disappointment, we know that it is the right thing to do to reinforce our commitment to one another and practice responsible business leadership during this unprecedented global health crisis.

Moving to an “Online” National Leadership Offering
Instead of holding our NLC as planned, the FBLA-PBL Board of Directors has opted to develop an online event for FBLA (including Middle Level) and PBL. This experience will include a general session with a keynote presenter led by the 2020 officer teams, leadership workshops, competitive events, and the annual election of our national officers. Specific information about deadlines, processes, and logistics will be communicated via email and social media as well as updated in real-time on a designated website to be shared in the weeks ahead.

FBLA-PBL National Officer Elections
After careful review by a task force and with input from legal counsel and a registered parliamentarian, the Board of Directors has approved a revised process and guidelines for the election of the FBLA and PBL national officers. Information on the election process and deadlines will be made available shortly to state leaders, local advisers, and student members.

First and foremost, the leadership of FBLA-PBL is dedicated to the safety of our student members and the volunteer advisers who support them. Even though our world has changed, our mission has never been clearer. We will be throwing our time, energy, and resources into a robust FBLA-PBL experience as we conclude this program year as well as prepare for a new program year in August.

We remain grateful for the ways in which so many FBLA-PBL community members have stepped up as leaders. Please stay tuned as we update you as soon as more details are available.

The Professional Division spent time this past weekend with more than 250 PBL students at the 2019 PBL Career Connections Conference. I had the opportunity to lead a small group of PBL members who met with business leaders from American Express and IHS Markit Ltd. Similar tours occurred with other NYC businesses along with a successful networking session, workshops, and resume reviews. The national officer team will also be participating in the NFLCs in DC, Birmingham, and Denver over the next three weekends.

A message from outgoing PD National President Ryan Paul:

As we close out this membership year, let us take a moment to celebrate everything we have achieved together. We have reached a milestone with the largest membership in history, which helps to support our middle level, high school, and collegiate students. PD members have served as mentors, reviewed resumes, presented workshops, judged competitive events, donated money, and provided assistance at the local, state, and national levels. Thank you for your continued support of our mission. It has been a pleasure to volunteer as a national officer for the past two years. I look forward to seeing many of you again in the future as we celebrate the continued growth and innovation under the leadership of the next officer team. Take care!

For the first day of FBLA-PBL Week, I will share a short story of my time in this amazing organization:

My name is Shannon McConnell and I am currently serving as the National Professional Division Secretary/Treasurer. My FBLA–PBL story is one that started back in high school in my freshman year. My advisor, Mrs. Faulkner, saw in me the potential to become a great leader and she asked me to join this amazing organization. Throughout my involvement with FBLA and then in my college years Phi Beta Lambda at Western Carolina University I have developed into the business professional that I am today. I can confidently say that without FBLA-PBL I would not be the Professional that I am today. This club gave me a place to belong and the experiences I had developed me into a well rounded person. I have so many memories that’s it’s hard to pick just one. But I’d have to say serving as a National Officer with Ryan Paul and Alan Rzepkowski is at the top. I would urge everyone to find a local chapter to belong to and start your amazing journey with this organization.
