Members of the Lake Region State College (LRSC) Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) chapter attended the 47th Annual State Leadership Conference in Grand Forks March 31-April 1, 2017.  This year’s theme was “Find Your Future”. Attending from LRSC were Pele Charboneau, Magen Haugen, and Sarah Sailor as well as advisor Diane Karlsbraaten. Students from UND, NDSU, University of Jamestown, Minot State, Bismarck State, and Dickinson State attended.

During the two days, students had the opportunity to test their business skills against other students from around the state, hear motivating speakers, and attend the general sessions, workshops, and tours. The culmination of the conference was the Award of Excellence Program where winners were recognized for their accomplishments.

The LRSC Phi Beta Lambda took home the Largest Percentage of Retention in Local Chapter Membership trophy.

The Career and Membership Achievement Program (CMAP) is a comprehensive membership recognition program encompassing PBL projects, goals, and programs with special emphasis on career development and preparation for the world of work. The awards focus on the words surrounding the PBL Crest: Service, Education, and Progress. Receiving the Director Award was Pele Charboneau. Magen Haugen and Sarah Sailor received the Executive Award for CMAP. 

The LRSC Phi Beta Lambda members took home the following awards: Pele Charboneau—3rd in Administrative Technology and Business Communication; Magen Haugen—1st in Business Communication and Information Management; and Sarah Sailor—2nd in Business Communication, Administrative Technology, and Information Management.

The students will be able to compete at the National PBL Conference in Anaheim, California June 24-27, 2017.

“PBL allows students to develop their leadership, communication, and team skills through bringing business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs,” said Advisor Diane Karlsbraaten.
