National Leadership Conference

National Leadership Conference: Anaheim, CA

  • National Leadership Conference (NLC) – The national organization hosts this four-day conference in at a different U.S. city each year. The 2017 PBL National Leadership Conference will be held in Anaheim, CA on June 24 – 27. This conference features the full slate of national competitive events, various leadership and business related workshops, and the election of the National Officers. All AZ PBL members are encouraged to attend this conference. Although our SLC event winners will have the first priority for selecting their events, due to the large number of events available, it is very likely that all members wishing to attend this conference would have the opportunity to compete in something. Also, members can attend the conference and benefit from it (e.g., by attending workshops) without competing. Chapters are strongly encouraged to raise funds throughout the year to help send their members to this conference.


  • Institute for Leaders (IFL)Held in conjunction with the National Leadership Conference, this high-energy, intensive, two-day seminar is a focused, leadership experience for state and local chapter officers, as well as members and advisers. This training conference prepares student leaders and members to assume their elected responsibilities and develop valuable life skills.
