PBL organizes a trip to various major cities every semester, taking about 30 members to meet with large corporate companies and local entrepreneurs. Through facility tours and interactive presentations, members have the chance to obtain new professional contacts and learn what careers and companies are available to them in various industries.
Every single year we participate in Phi Beta Lambda’s National Awards Program, which recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. At the State Leadership Conferences, we compete in events testing our business knowledge and skills. Top state winners are then eligible to compete for national awards at the National Leadership Conference each summer! Check out our results from this year.
