Several members of Southern Regional Technical College’s (SRTC) Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) and Colquitt County High School’s (CCHS) Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) met with Moultrie Mayor Bill McIntosh Tuesday afternoon as he signed and issued a proclamation declaring February 3-9 as National FBLA-PBL Week in the City of Moultrie.
PBL is a national, nonprofit organization and educational association with a quarter million student members preparing for careers in business and business-related fields. FBLA-PBL is the largest business career student organization in the world. The purpose of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) at SRTC is to provide opportunities for college students to develop vocational competencies for business and office occupations. PBL is an integral part of the instructional program, and in addition promotes a sense of civic and personal responsibility.
Some of the goals SRTC’s PBL chapters include developing competent, aggressive business leadership, strengthening the confidence of students in themselves and their work, encouraging members in the development of individual projects which contribute to the improvement of home, business, and community, assisting students in the establishment of occupational goals, and facilitating the transition from school to work.
Annually, PBL chapters at SRTC send students to district and state level competition. Competitors who place first at the state level go on to compete at the national level. In 2019, SRTC’s PBL chapters are sending representatives in areas such as Human Resource Management, Public Speaking, Client Service, and Personal Finance. The South District Competition will take place on February 22, 2019 at Central Georgia Technical College in Macon.
