Newsletter – 2013-11-24

Last week, twenty-four members of Rutgers Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) represented Rutgers University at the 2013 FBLA-PBL National Fall Leadership Conference.  The conference took place in Cleveland, Ohio, with over a thousand other members from different FBLA and PBL chapters representing more than twenty states. Members attended a variety of workshops covering topics such as networking, leadership, personal and professional development, and entrepreneurship. Members of PBL also had the opportunity to explore Cleveland and attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. At the conference, Rutgers-New Brunswick PBL was recognized for sending the largest local chapter delegation to NFLC.  Overall, NFLC was a great success and a wonderful experience for all of the attendees.


Although your education is key, effective networking will get you where you want to be. Master your handshake, perfect your elevator speech, and seize every opportunity to talk to people about your career goals – an opportunity may arise when you least expect it.
