PCS students excel at the Future Business Leaders of America conference

Aug. 5, 2022

National Leadership Conference FBLA  

Pinellas chapters and members earned national recognition for their projects and participation in competitive events. In District XII, 11 of our students placed in the top 10. Making it to the conference is a rigorous process. Those who competed showed their dedication and drive to become Future Business Leaders. 
The national conference took place June 29 through July 2 in Chicago, following three years of virtual events.

Top competitors from chapters across the globe came together to compete. When not competing, Pinellas FBLA members attended business and leadership workshops, campaigned for national FBLA officers, and networked with FBLA members from across the world.
