Virtual PBL Chapter Spotlight

Everything You Need to Know About the Virtual PBL Chapter

As the year comes to a close, many graduating senior members are reaching the end of their FBLA careers. However, as one door closes, another opens. Many FBLA alumni go on to become members of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), the collegiate division of FBLA. Still though, many colleges and universities do not have a PBL chapter of their own. So, what do you do if your school of choice does not offer PBL as a club? Luckily, there is an easy solution for this. The Virtual Chapter of PBL allows members from any college to join the organization and take advantage of the career-building opportunities offered by PBL.

As a member of the Virtual Chapter, you will have full access to state and national leadership conferences where you’ll have the chance to compete in academic events against other top students in your state and from across the country, attend leadership and career development workshops, connect with other members in social events and networking activities, and campaign for local, state, and national offices. Similar to FBLA conferences, the state leadership conferences are held in both the fall and the spring and the national leadership conference is held in the summer. PBL is the perfect organization for students looking to network with other high-achieving students, attend conferences, compete in academic and business-focused events, run for office, enhance their résumé, and prepare for a rewarding career in business.

Now, how does one go about joining the Virtual PBL Chapter? The application to join or renew your Virtual Phi Beta Lambda (VPBL) membership can be completed quickly and easily using the online form which you can find at the following url:
