Phi Beta Lambda was chartered at Blue Ridge Community College during the fall of 2000. Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) is a non-profit educational association of students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields. PBL is a national organization.
There is an opportunity to participate in state and national conferences and project competitions on computer, accounting, marketing, management, economics and business law, among other business-related areas.
The goals of PBL are to develop competent, aggressive business leadership, and strengthen the confidence of students in themselves and their work. Members are involved with the community during a holiday season through activities to collect clothes for needy people and to adopt families for Christmas. PBL is financed primarily through membership dues. The fundraising among members plays an important role in the association’s financial base.
