Today, the FBLA-PBL Board of Directors has announced that the National Leadership Conference will be a online event for FBLA (including Middle Level) and PBL. This experience will include a general session with a keynote presenter led by the 2020 officer teams, leadership workshops, competitive events, and the annual election of our national officers. Specific information about deadlines, processes, and logistics will be communicated via email and social media as well as updated in real-time on a designated website to be shared in the weeks ahead.

For New Jersey FBLA's SLC, we will be holding our officer elections electronically, and be releasing more information on our virtual competitions 

As has been our priority, the leadership of New Jersey FBLA-PBL is dedicated to the safety of our student members and the volunteer advisers who support them. Even though our world has changed, our mission has never been clearer.
