Ultimate FCS Leadership Development Packages

Due to COVID, National FCCLA, along with CTLP, will be offering some discounts on group rates for student membership for a limited time. This is available now and will run until November 1. After November 1, all rates will return to normal pricing. There will be two packages:


1. one for up to 20 members, for a total of $360.00

2. one for 50 members or more for a total of $1000.


Here are the steps to complete this:


Step 1: Complete the Request to Participate form using the link below to select the temporary package you would like to use for the 2020-2021 school year. Please have your chapter ID ready to complete this form.

Click here for the Request to Participate Form

Step 2: Wait to hear confirmation from FCCLA before affiliating your chapter. National FCCLA will advise you via email within two business days of receiving your Request to Participate form as to when you can affiliate in the FCCLA portal with your chapter’s selected package option. This correspondence will be an email sent to the email address used to complete the Request to Participate form. Note: To ensure you receive the correct package rate you have selected, please do NOT affiliate your chapter until we confirm the participation package you selected has been turned on for your chapter per your request.


Step 3: After you have received email confirmation from FCCLA that the selected package has been turned on for your chapter, log into the FCCLA portal and affiliate your members as you normally would. Before selecting the ‘Create Invoice’ button, please verify the correct rate is displayed. If the rate appears incorrect, please select the ‘Close’ button and reach out to the FCCLA Operations department at membership@fcclainc.org or call 703-476-4900.


NOTE: If you already submitted your affiliation for the current year and would like to take advantage of one of FCCLA's temporary leadership development packages, please complete the Invoice Removal Form and send the form to your state adviser for approval. Once FCCLA receives the approved Invoice Removal Form, the invoice will be removed and you will be notified that you are now able to affiliate under one of the two respective packages.


Seek support from your administration or partners to help fund the package you have selected for your chapter and your chapter’s participation in FCCLA’s first-ever Virtual Leadership Experience. Click here to access the request for support letter to edit to meet your needs and share with your school’s administration to gain support and seek funding for your chapter’s participation.
