This Saturday February 25th, marks Stevens 4th year in attending Phi Beta Lambda’s Spring State Leadership Conference. Phi Beta Lambda, also known as PBL, is the collegiate version of FBLA or Future Business Leaders of America. The nation’s largest business club offers many conferences throughout the year for its members to attend, network, and compete in.
Stevens is sending nine of our PBL members from a variety of majors to the State Spring Leadership Conference.
Members in our chapter of PBL will be competing in subjects such as Marketing Concepts, Financial Services, Word Processing, Computer Applications, Business Decision Making and much more! Competitors are allowed to compete in two events at the conference, and if they place either 1st or 2nd in the given event at a State level, they are eligible to compete at the National Conference during June.
Last Spring, six members of our PBL chapter attended the 2011 Spring State Leadership Conference. Out of our six members, every single member placed 1st or 2nd either both or one of their events, qualifying for PBL’s National Conference in Orlando, FL. I must say, this just proves the pure brilliance of the Stevens student.
The students we were competing with were from some of the state’s top business schools such as Rutgers and TCNJ. Needless to say, we kick butt every year and get some pretty nasty looks from our competitors from other schools, who all major in these subjects.
Overall, being a part of PBL is a great way to network with other students from different universities and a way to show off why you go to Stevens! Wish us luck, and tune in for the results of the conference next week!
