This week’s featured Registered Student Organization (RSO) is Phi Beta Lambda (PBL).

The purpose of PBL is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.  It is a national organization associated with the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). 

The national division of PBL was established in 1958, with the Illinois division debuting in 1964.  The organization was first introduced to SIU in 1993.

PBL is involved with various events throughout the academic year.  Some of these events include volunteering at the local animal shelter, hosting guest speakers, hosting a fundraiser at Cool Spoons Frozen Yogurt and Treats, and supporting the March of Dimes.  Members of the organization will attend the Illinois PBL State Leadership Conference on April 4 and 5, in Effingham, IL. 

PBL is open to all undergraduate students.  Anyone interested in becoming a member should contact Nick Gregory at ngregory@siu.edu.  Their next meeting will be held this Wednesday, April 2, at 5:00 p.m. in Rehn 108, and continuing every other week until the end of the semester.  You can also learn more information by visiting their Facebook page
