California Awards Program (CAP) 

The California PBL Awards Program is a culmination of all of our hard work during the year. It provides us not only with the opportunity for recognition among our peers in California, but also prepares us for the grand stage at the National Leadership Conference in the summer.

The California PBL Awards Program is not just a resume-builder. Although future employers may be impressed with your achievements through our competitive events, the real key to success with our program is personal development. Not a confident public speaker? Well, take advantage of the perfect chance to improve your speaking skills. Gain valuable experience by competing in Public Speaking, all while being judged by established business professionals.

So we look forward to seeing you, along with hundreds of eager members and business professionals as we proudly present our awards at the State Business Leadership Conference.
