FBLA CONFERENCES AND MEETINGS

FBLA offers a variety of meetings that promote leadership development. Participating in such activities offers members the opportunity to form useful and lasting networks.

State Leadership Conference (SLC)

The State Leadership Conference is held annually in the spring. Conference activities include state officer campaigns and elections, competitive events, workshops, social functions, and awards banquet. Materials for conference and event registration are sent to local chapters in early spring following the regional conferences.

Regional Fall Conferences

Every fall, Virginia FBLA sponsors regional fall conferences. The date and site of these conferences are determined by each Regional Vice President and Regional Director. Participants attend leadership development workshops and share ideas while gaining a better understanding of the regional and state organization.

Executive Committee Meetings

The Virginia FBLA Executive Committee meets throughout the year and at the annual State Leadership Conference. Members of the Executive Committee include state officers and their advisers, the State Chairman, Specialist, and Regional Directors.

National Fall Leadership Conference (NFLC)

This conference is scheduled annually. Students and advisers share ideas and reaffirm common goals while participating in professional development and career opportunity workshops. The NFLC Guide, which is sent from the national office to local chapters, includes information and registration forms.

National Leadership Conference (NLC)

The NLC, held each summer, concludes the year's activities and sets the stage for the upcoming school year. Conference participants attend business-related and leadership development workshops, tour business and corporate facilities, elect national officers, and participate in national competitive events. The NLC Guide includes information and registration forms and is mailed from the national office to local chapters.

FBLA-PBL members are representing the premier business student organization and are expected to project a professional image in all activities. State and national conferences require adherence to a dress code and code of conduct, which are published prior to each conference.
