Houston! We Have a Conference!

We will be ready for the good times in March 2023 when FBD and its member associations return to the vibrant city of Houston.  We are at our 'home-base', the Hyatt Regency Houston.  Join your colleagues for a great conference in a bustling and always-in-demand city. The conference will host an assortment of program activities certain to provide a stimulating professional experience as well as an opportunity to visit with old friends and make new ones.

FBD and its ten member associations joined together to form a federation, of which FBD serves as the umbrella organization. Established in 1974, FBD is a successful, nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that has long been recognized as a premier multi-disciplinary platform for advancing business knowledge and practice, developing new standards of educational excellence, and encouraging intellectual and social interchange among academicians, university administrators, and their constituents.

Additionally, FBD:

Provides and coordinates an annual meeting for association members.

Has a common general program in which all association members participate together.

Provides a forum through its annual meeting to discuss and exchange ideas and to present formal research papers.

Fosters professional growth and enrichment for members of each association.

Provides information that can be used to improve classroom instruction, research, and academic or business development.

Honors outstanding educators and recognizes distinguished papers presented at the meeting through sponsored events.
