In preparation for an active leadership role, today’s classroom instruction is not enough to develop strong, assertive leaders. Through Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), members learn how to lead and participate in group discussions, preside at meetings and conferences, work effectively within committees and engage in practical problem solving and decision making. Members learn the value of competition on local, district, state and national levels by experiencing the responsibility of success as well as the challenge of defeat.
Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is a local, state and national organization for secondary students who are participating in business and business-related programs.
Future Business Leaders of America can function as an integral part of the instructional program of the business curriculum in secondary schools. FBLA is composed of active, professional, honorary life and national honorary life members and is the secondary division of FBLA-PBL, Inc. Phi Bets Lambda (PBL) is the post-secondary division of FBLA-PBL, Inc.
All chapters and the national organization are guided in their plans and activities by advisory committees–business instructors, professional members, school administrators and/or businessmen and women.
