Future Business Leaders of America–Phi Beta Lambda

Mission of Organization

Phi Beta Lambda is a college-level business organization open to all majors. It brings business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.

IUP PBL chapter members are involved in a wide variety of activities throughout the university and the Indiana community. Members are provided with the opportunity to gain state and national recognition by attending and competing in leadership conferences. We also focus on community service and networking.

How to Join

Contact PBL at pbl.iup@gmail.com or attend the next meeting.

Requirements of Members (Membership Fees, Attendance, etc.)

There are no requirements to become a member; however, there are requirements to attend conferences with us. PBL members have to pay dues which will be $60 for the entire year. These dues go towards the national and state dues and also help lower the cost of other activities. Members are required to do ten hours of community service in order to attend PBL conferences.
