THANK YOU for attending the 2017 State Leadership Conference. Watch the conference look back video here:

71st Annual Ohio FBLA SLC

March 15-16, 2018

Ohio Union at The Ohio State University

Columbus, Ohio

In March we will be enjoying the seminal event of the year, the State Leadership Conference.  This conference offers the opportunity for students all over the state to gather for great fun and educational opportunities. At the heart of this event are competitive events. With over 65 events ranging from Hospitality Management to Business Calculations, the students enjoy the opportunity to improve their business knowledge and professionalism. Many of these events are production and performance oriented, requiring judging. We fully intend these judges to be industry professionals from the local community. Any local business person that would be willing to judge would be a great advocate for student business education. In addition to competitive events, students will enjoy guest speakers, workshops and general sessions featuring a talent show, awards presentation and so much more.

Additional information about the 2018 SLC will be posted here as it becomes available.
