Massachusetts State Leadership Conference
Each spring, prior to the end of the academic year, members and advisers from all chapters in the commonwealth are invited to the State Leadership Conference. The highlights of this one-day event include professional development workshops, awards, and networking with other chapters and local businesspeople. Additionally, members have the opportunity to participate in several competitive events, and top finalists in each event will be eligible to compete at the National Leadership Conference.

National Leadership Conference
FBLA-PBL members have the competitive edge, as the best and brightest of FBLA and PBL convene to compete in leadership events, share their successes, and learn new ideas about shaping their career future through workshops and exhibits. This four-day conference — held each year in June — is considered the pinnacle of the FBLA-PBL experience, especially for those running for national office. FBLA-PBL has forged partnerships with industry leaders to underwrite competitive events and scholarships for students achieving national ranking.
Held in conjunction with the National Leadership Conference, the Institute for Leaders is an optional, high-energy, intensive, two-day seminar focused-leadership experience for state and local chapter officers, as well as members and advisers. This training conference prepares student leaders and members to assume their elected responsibilities and develop valuable life skills.
The 2018 FBLA High School Division National Leadership Conference will be held in Baltimore, Maryland on June 28–July 1. The Institute for Leaders will be held June 27–28.
The location of the National Leadership Conference rotates each year, visiting large cities throughout the country. Upcoming cities are:

- 2019: San Antonio, Texas
- 2020: Salt Lake City, Utah
