PBL Presidential Greeting

Congratulations on becoming a better you, seeking to improve your business skills and expand your leadership potential. Congratulations on joining Future Business Leaders of America - Phi Beta Lambda.

I would like to thank you for joining the collegiate level of our wonderful organization - Phi Beta Lambda. Each year, hundreds of your fellow Missouri college students join you, advancing their knowledge through several means. From conferences to competitive events to leadership positions, this organization can prepare you for a successful future in business.

In the fall, we hope that you will join us at National Fall Leadership Conference. Each year, members from around the globe will meet in one of three locations. This year you can join us in Dallas, Cleveland, or Salt Lake City. Engaging speakers and leadership training will be provided to all those in attendance, and you can network with peers and professionals in any of these cities.

We also hope that you will join us at the Missouri Fall Leadership conference, that will be held at St. Charles Community College. Here, you can meet members from Middle Level, FBLA, and PBL and help to grow the Missouri Chapter of FBLA-PBL while receiving valuable leadership training.

In the spring, members from Missouri will test the skills they have learned all year at the Missouri Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference. Some will succeed at Accounting for Professionals or Website Design. Others wil challenge themselves at Contemporary Sports Issues or Retail Management. Top winners at the State Leadership Conference will compete for thousands of dollars in scholarship at the National Leadership Conference in Nashville in June.

Once again, I would like to thank you for taking this step to prepare yourself for the future. I began in this organization my freshman year of high school, and now in my seventh year, I finish as the President of the Missouri Chapter of Phi Beta Lambda. I know that you will enjoy your time just as much as I did.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have. I look forward to meeting each of you at one of our events this year!
