Meet your Florida PBL 2016-2017 State Officers

State officers serve a one year term and represent Florida PBL to businesses leaders, education officials, community partners, and most importantly the state membership.

Justin first joined FBLA-PBL in high school where he served as an Alabama FBLA State Vice President. During his undergrad years in North Carolina Phi Beta Lambda, he was elected State President. And now as a graduate student and President of Florida Phi Beta Lambda, Justin’s focus is state membership growth career development initiatives.
