SBLC Update

The time has come to “Ignite Innovation” at the 2013 State Business Leadership Conference (SBLC). Soon we will all gather in Portland to compete, attend workshops and business tours, and some of you will even have the opportunity to campaign to be on the 2013-2014 State Officer Team! Together we ignited innovation at CLT, OLI and Regional Skills Conferences to get to this point, and now that SBLC is here we are going to truly “Break through Barriers” before the National Leadership Conference (NLC) in the place where dreams come true, Anaheim California!

3, 2, 1 SHOWTIME!
