Teamwork Pays Off for Phi Beta Lambda’s Daytona Beach Chapter at Statewide Conference

The Business Club of Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus, Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) made their presence known among the club’s 14,000 Florida members at their recent annual state conference in Orlando. Members competed in business and industry focused competitive events, attended leadership development workshops and networked with industry leaders from across the state. Florida has one of the largest PBL districts in the country.

Embry-Riddle Chapter President Audrey Parios competed in the Job Interview competition at the conference and became the state runner-up. She will attend the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California this summer to compete against other state champions and runner-ups from across the country.

The Website Design team of Lauren Drake, Nick Hernandez, and Chapter Treasurer Tim Bernard took the bronze medal in their competition.

The final victory, a team effort for the underdog Embry-Riddle Chapter saw Justin Flemons elected PBL State President for Florida, which he will serve as during the 2017-2018 academic school year, while also representing the Daytona Beach Campus Chapter. The two great videos the chapter produced for Flemon’s presidential campaign can be seen here: campaign video, and “in-flight commercial.”

Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda is the largest career student organization in the world. Each year, FBLA-PBL helps over 230,000 members prepare for careers in business. Their mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.
