Students and advisers participate in motivational general sessions and professional development and career planning workshops. For many FBLA-PBL members, the NFLCs are a convenient and affordable way to experience much of the education and excitement of an NLC.

The annual State Leadership Conference (SLC) is NYS-FBLA's way of wrapping up our yearly program of work (along with that of our chapters) while taking the first steps into the next year. There is something for everybody at this conference, which includes:

*The campaigns of all of the prospective state officers, along with the election, appointment and installation of next year's State Officer Team!
*The wrap-up of the program of work of the State Officer Team, including the final state committee reports detailing our success over the past year as well as a fond farewell to our faithful state officers!
*The state level of competition for the extensive FBLA competitive events program, with New York's finest business students competing against each other in over fifty individual, team and chapter events! Many of these events are also offered at the national level through their Competitive Event Program, and top winners in those events will have the opportunity to represent New York State at the 2054 National Leadership Conference in Orland, Florida! (For more information, see the state competitive event guidelines.)
*Thousands of NYS-FBLA members from across the state with whom to talk, learn, network, dance and sing! (Well, maybe not sing. Unless you really want to. But there are dances, including the famous Officers' Ball.)

As you can see, the SLC is the cornerstone of New York State FBLA, and is an invaluable experience for all chapters and members. We would like to see every chapter attending the SLC, and sincerely feel that every member should have the opportunity to attend an SLC at least once in his FBLA career. 

The NYSFBLA 2005 State Leadership Conference will be held from April 12th-15th 2005 (with early arrivals on April 11th) Kutshers Country Club. Chapters have to do a lot of planning for the SLC, including coordinating attendance, travel, costs, voting delegations, campaigns for state officers and competitive events for competing students. To help with this, we have worked to make this website a useful tool in learning about and planning for the SLC.

The National Leadership Conference (NLC) concludes the year's activities and sets the stage for the upcoming school year. The NLC is held each summer in a major American city. FBLA and PBL members and advisers participate in business-related and leadership development workshops, tour business and corporate facilities, elect national officers, and participate in national competitive events. The Professional Division holds its annual business meeting during the PBL National Leadership Conference. The NLC Guide, the official information and registration form for the conference, is mailed to local chapters in early spring.

The Institute for Leaders is the organizational and leadership training session for state and local chapter officers, members, and advisers. Held in conjunction with the National Leadership Conference, this training conference prepares student leaders and members to assume their elected responsibilities and develop valuable life skills.
