Today, we stand as college students. Tomorrow, as young professionals. The transition between both inter-correlated stages is essential for the development of every individual. Here at LBSA, our professional pillar strives to make sure your transition is as smooth as possible. Our founders have passed down the torch to us, and we are to provide professional guidance that will help our members with their career paths. 

Our executive board works hard to provide our members with various workshops, conferences, network opportunities, and guest speakers. One of our biggest conferences of the year is known as the “Professional Development Conference.” PDC is an afternoon filled with workshops and hands-on interactions with an abundance of professionals in their respective fields. Remember, the only person stopping you from reaching your professional peak is that person in the mirror.

Some of our Previous Events

cPDC was initiated to provide the Latinx community at UCI and partnering chapters the opportunity to develop their professional skills and network with diverse companies that can assist participants in their professional pursuits. PDC consisted of a series of workshops where students acquired skills to apply in the professional world. In addition, the students participated in a networking portion where they practiced their skills with hosting companies.
