The Phi Beta Lambda national conference will be composed of students from 47 Phi Beta Lambda chapters from across the nation who have placed first or second in various competitions from their state conference.
“This will be UNA’s 24th consecutive year attending a national conference,” says Donna Yancey, a marketing instructor in the College of Business. “In the 24 years at national conferences, UNA has brought home 79 national winners from the various competitions at nationals.”
Not only is a national conference a great academic opportunity for participating students, it also presents students with networking opportunities.
