ULM Phi Beta Lambda chapter hosts state conference March 21
The Phi Beta Lambda State Leadership Conference will take place at the University of Louisiana at Monroe Saturday, March 21; the conference will begin at 9 a.m. in the Administration Building.
Phi Beta Lambda members, college students from across Louisiana, will compete in Business Law, Public Speaking, Job Interview, Network Design, and Mr./Ms. Future Business Executive.
“Our chapter is truly honored about the opportunity to host the PBL State Conference at the university,” said Kevin Sledge, ULM PBL president. “Hosting the state conference within our second year of reactivation speaks volumes about our membership and growth.”
Last year, the PBL State Conference was held at the Best Western Conference Center in Alexandria; three ULM Phi Beta Lambda members attended Nationals in Atlanta, Ga.
