Nebraska PBL's Lasting Legacy
Nebraska FBLA-PBL was formed as a single organization in 1962. The chapter began with the following state officer positions: President; High School and College Vice Presidents; Corresponding and Recording Secretaries; Treasurer; and Reporter. The first State Leadership Conference was held in March 1962 where three FBLA chapters, four PBL chapters, and delegates from four other schools were represented. The first PBL chapter was the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which received its charter from the Kansas State Teachers College from Emporia on October 25, 1962.
Nebraska PBL can be found in over 14 Nebraska Secondary Institutions including two year and four year colleges and universities. Members in Nebraska PBL have the opportunity to attend both the Fall and the State Leadership Conferences held in Lincoln and Kearney respectfully. With over 250 members, Nebraska PBL has always had great success in competitive events which can be attributed to the state’s focus on business. These events range from Job Interview, to Sports Marketing and Management, to Macroeconomics, and Web Site Design. Members in NE PBL have the chance to grow their leadership abilities, serve in community service projects, and build valuable business experiences.
