Since inception, the Foundation has disbursed monies to students for leadership activities. FBLA-PBL members participate in a wide variety of leadership development activities and conferences on the local, state, and national levels. At conferences students attend leadership workshops and participate in competitive events.
The Maryland FBLA-PBL Foundation serves Maryland FBLA-PBL members by providing support for state winners to participate in national competition, scholarships, and leadership development programs, as well as supporting the annual State Leadership Conference. Leadership conference participation can cost each student over $1,000 depending upon location. Many schools are limited in conducting fundraising projects to support FBLA-PBL activities.
