The FBLA NLC is a prestigious event that allows students to showcase their business skills and knowledge. It’s also a valuable opportunity for personal growth. Students can attend leadership workshops, network with peers from around the country, and participate in various activities that strengthens leadership development.

“The wide variety of activities and being surrounded by the nation’s brightest business students is an incredible experience,” said Rebecca Pape. “I’m so grateful for this opportunity.”
