logoFuture Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda, Inc.




October brings Autumn which, marks the transition from summer to winter. One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees. This happens to be my favorite part of the year. Mainly because in Arizona 100 degree days are over!

For your 2017-18 National Officers, it is time to begin completing our Program of Work. With our Action Councils in place we now focus on one of our most important goals. “To develop a strategic plan for collegiate FBLA-PBL.” The national officer team recognizes that without dedicated members like you, our organization would not exist.

Our 2017-18 membership theme is “Elevate Your Future”. To accomplish this, we felt it was imperative that we send out a membership survey. The PBL National Officer Team is eager to hear your thoughts regarding the current and future state of our organization. Please take a few minutes to complete the 2017 PBL membership survey. The survey closes Friday, October 6.

A common goal for all national officers was to continue the “state officer roundtables”, however, we wanted to offer them to all members. Your ideas and opinion are the foundation of FBLA-PBL. Starting in October. The roundtables will be held at 7:00pm CST on Thursday, October 5; Monday, October 9; Tuesday, October 17; and Wednesday, October 25. The link to sign up to attend one of the roundtables can be found here, October member roundtables.

Lastly, National Fall Leadership Conferences begin in November, Arizona PBL will be attending New Orleans, Louisiana on November 17-18. The National Officer Team hopes to see you at one of our exciting National Fall Leadership Conferences. For more information, follow this link 2017 NFLC .

In Leadership,
