Phi Beta Lambda is the collegiate division of the national
association, Future Business Leaders of America–Phi Beta Lambda, Inc.
(FBLA-PBL). And don’t let the Greek name deceive you––PBL is not a social fraternity
or sorority. Social events are certainly a part of PBL activities, but the main
focus is business and leadership development.
The mission of PBL is to bring business and education
together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and
career development programs.
Business and education are
brought together when students preparing to enter the business world interact
with those persons currently in the business world. Through this interaction,
student members learn how to become more marketable, and gain contacts in the
business world that will help them accomplish their career objectives.
The best leaders and business
professionals are not born being the best––they have to continuously hone their
skills if they want to stay on top. PBL gives motivated individuals the tools
they need in their quest for self-improvement. Local chapters throughout the
nation participate in a wide variety of activities both on and off campus. They
initiate business ventures, organize community service projects, attend state
and national leadership conferences, participate in fundraisers, and create
publications. Students have the opportunity to win accolades on the state and
national levels. Members gain a competitive advantage in the business world by
interacting with local companies and their executives.
PBL is for college students,
with over 8,000 members and more than 350 chapters nationwide.
How Can You Benefit From PBL?
In short, the only limit to what can be achieved is how hard
you are willing to work. Here are some of the most common activities that PBL
members participate in:
Conferences : Conferences
include informative and motivational keynote addresses, career fairs,
workshops, competitive events, theme dances, election of officers, and awards
recognition. The workshops at the conferences provide business-related and
personal educational opportunities, while event competition allows students to
gain recognition for their business and leadership knowledge.
Leadership Activities : PBL is about working together. In keeping with this
spirit of cooperation, PBL has formed partnerships with national organizations
to provide its membership with a range of exciting and innovative programs and
activities. Members gain recognition, financial assistance, and valuable
experience through their participation in programs such as the March of Dimes,
the National Literacy Project, Investment Challenge, Operation Enterprise, and
the PBL Foundation Scholarship program.
Positions : Because PBL is a national organization, students have the
opportunity to serve as officers on the local, state, regional, and national
levels. Members who aspire to leadership roles gain the experience of running a
campaign, going through officer training, and playing an important role in the
development of the program of work for the year—not to mention the experience
of leading the chapter in its activities and acting as an ambassador for the
