FBLA-PBL NATIONAL DRESS CODE FBLA-PBL members and advisers are expected to follow the FBLA-PBL dress code. The purpose of the dress code is to uphold the professional image of the association and its members and to prepare students for the business world.
WHY DO WE HAVE A DRESS CODE? The dress code is intended to give FBLA members guidelines on what is and isnt universally appropriate business attire. FBLA members must project the image of confident, professional future business leaders.

Appropriate business attire is required for all general sessions, awards sessions, competitive events, and workshops for all conference attendees. Success is dependent on effort. Sophocles
