Eleven student members who placed at the 2018 Arkansas PBL State Leadership Conference are eligible to represent SAU and Arkansas PBL at the NLC by competing in their respective events. Additionally, one member was elected to the office of Arkansas PBL President and is required to attend the NLC.

This year’s trip is considerably more expensive than previous years when the chapter has driven to nationals. With the additional cost of airfare, the trip will cost $11,778 in all. The chapter is currently $4,200 away from its fundraising goal.
Thank you so much for your consideration! We are so grateful for your support and are looking forward to representing Southern Arkansas University this summer as we compete at Nationals!
