FBLA offers state and national meetings that promote leadership development. FBLA conferences are a great place to network face-to-face with members.

State Leadership Conference (SLC)

Students and advisers participate in motivational general sessions and professional development and career planning workshops. For many FBLA members, the SLCs are a convenient and affordable way to experience much of the education and excitement of an NLC.

National Leadership Conference (NLC)

FBLA members have the competitive edge, as the best and brightest of FBLA convene to compete in leadership events, share their successes, and learn new ideas about shaping their career future through workshops and exhibits. This four-day conference is considered the pinnacle of the FBLA experience, especially for those running for national office. FBLA has forged partnerships with industry leaders to underwrite competitive events and scholarships for students achieving national ranking.

Institute for Leaders (IFL)

Held in conjunction with the National Leadership Conference, this high-energy, intensive, two-day seminar is a focused-leadership experience for state and local chapter officers, as well as members and advisers. This training conference prepares student leaders and members to assume their elected responsibilities and develop valuable life skills.
