01.30.19 State Adviser Update

Advisers/Chapter Presidents,


1)  Attached is the 2019 SLC Guide -- perfect reading material for one of these cold evenings!  Although the information is basically the same as previous years, please go through the Guide carefully so your members will be aware of all the opportunities of SLC.  Of course, for event guides and instructions, go to the state and national handbooks ( and  After the Summits next week, if you have any questions just contact Dr. Doole or me (This email address is being protected from spambots.

*Note that the Guide corrects the NCPBL Calendar in the Handbook on procedures for the Business Communication event.  That event is now a school-site event; a proctor form must be sent and then the actual writing assignment is brought to SLC.  (The Handbook lists the event as one for which a pdf file is submitted electronically.)   The only new event this year is Insurance Concepts, a written test event.


2)  The "State Conference Preparation Summits" (new name for "Tip-Offs") are next Thursday, February 7, 1:00-4:00, at Fayetteville State University, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and Catawba College (Hurley Room).  Mr. Fann will send details on rooms and parking.  There is no registration fee, but chapters are asked to let Mr. Fann know which location delegates will attend.  (This email address is being protected from spambots.

3)  Hopefully all chapters are continuing second semester membership recruiting.  At the end of February, the membership ranking:


1 - Central Carolina Community College and Meredith College

3 - Western Carolina University

4 - Wake Forest University

5 - East Carolina University and Wake Technical Community College


Congratulations also to these chapters who have already exceeded their last year's membership:  Western Carolina University, Wake Forest University, University of Mount Olive, Meredith College, Fayetteville State University, East Carolina University, and Durham Technical Community College.


NCPBL also welcomes the reactivated chapter at Fayetteville Technical Community College!


4)  Recruitment also continues for NCPBL PD-F members.  Our PD-F is close to the membership goal of 250; advisers, other college employees, business supporters, and family supporters are all "needed" PD-F members.


5)  If you have any business contacts in the Charlotte area that we could call on for judging events on April 5 please contact Josanna Busby, a PD-F Board member who is coordinating this aspect of the Awards Program.  (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)  Judges are needed for morning and afternoon sessions on that Friday.


6) Best wishes for successful PBL Month programs and activities.  As always, thank you for your work as advisers and chapter student leaders.
