State Leadership Conference Information

This is the second year that Middle School division members are permitted to attend the State Leadership Conference in Hershey from April 8-10. They will NOT compete at the conference; the MS competitive event program has not changed in that regard. However, they may participate in other parts of the SLC such as leadership development workshops, general sessions and social activities. MS awards will be announced and presented to those in attendance at the beginning of the Opening Session the evening of Monday, April 8. More details will follow in separate communications.

For those planning to attend the SLC, MS advisers MUST complete the SLC registration and lodging process by the same deadline as the high school members, February 3, 2023, by 11:59 p.m. You will need to review messages from Bruce Boncal and Janet Skiles related to the SLC for further details and instructions. Information is also available on the PA FBLA website in the State Leadership Conference Information section, State Leadership Conference Information – April 08-10, 2024 – PA FBLAState Leadership Conference Information – April 08-10, 2024 – PA FBLA.
