MANHATTAN - N.Y. On October 25-27, State Secretary Alex Capi traveled to the inaugural PBL Career Connections Conference (CCC). This is the first national fall leadership conference that is exclusively for PBL members, which changed the entire conference experience for attendees that were used to prior traditions of combining FBLA and PBL members at National Fall Leadership Conferences (NFLCs).
While representing the University of Washington chapter and the Washington State Association, CCC had reached over 200 attendees from around the country, including resume critiques, networking sessions with other state leaders, alumni, and professionals, individual headshot pictures, and soft skill workshops. Alex had the distinct opportunity to visit Bloomberg LP and Closerlook, Inc.!
"This conference gave me the opportunity to travel to New York for the first time. I was fortunate to learn about some of New York's environments, including the areas of business, marketing, tourism, and hospitality. It was also pretty exciting to meet and reunite with other state and local leaders in the association such as North Dakota, Pennsylvania, California, Florida, Missouri, New York, and all others in attendance."
