CENTRALIA, Wash. - Over 5 Washington and Oregon PBL chapters rose with resilience at the 2018 State Leadership Conference on February 23-24.
Hosted by the Centralia College chapter, dozens of members have put their skills to the test with a variety of academic and business case competitions, ranging from Accounting Principles to Job Interview, and from Business Presentation to Website Design! We congratulate all competitors who placed in the Top 3, and for the national qualifiers (WA 1st place) who will be moving on for national awards and honors at the National Leadership Conference in Baltimore, MD on June 23-26.
Additional Conference Highlights
Keynote Speaker - Joe Stout, Mt. Capra

Elevate Your Future at #NLC18PBL!
All members who ranked 1st in a state competitive event will have the pinnacle opportunity to attend the PBL National Leadership Conference, as well as the Institute for Leaders in Baltimore this summer! For those who plan to compete at NLC, individuals are limited to entering in 2 competitive events (chapter events do not count towards this total). There is still another chance for members who did not place 1st to directly attend and compete at NLC by competing an event that was not offered at the state level. All members will need to pay their state and national dues by April 15.
Here is the complete list of events available for any WA PBL member to select for NLC:
Final Words from your 2017-18 State Officers:
I dedicated myself to FBLA-PBL for 7+ years, and I have never felt this sense of accomplishment in the organization until now. I joined PBL during my first year in my undergraduate career, and have presided the University of Washington chapter since then.
