Monday, June 29 – Wednesday, July 1

Due to COVID-19, the National Leadership Conference has been reformatted to a National Leadership Experience that will include opportunities such as competitive events, leadership sessions and officer elections.  Visit for additional event details posted by the national office.  This webpage has been developed to support student members, parents, advisers and other partners regarding procedures specific to Wisconsin FBLA operations.


Dates may vary from national deadlines due to Wisconsin FBLA's need to process event materials and roster event participants
