Advisors Q&A

We will be meeting this week at 5:00 pm for our Q&A session. Bring your questions and ideas to share with others. From our meeting last week, Carleigh Salmon shared the PowerPoint that her president, Thahec Arreola, put together for their chapter. They have graciously gave permission to share it with you to edit it for your chapters. If you are looking for a way to help your students decide if they want to run for office and which particular position, Thahec, designed a decision map to help them out. You may request the different graphics from the PowerPoint, including the decision map for which office to run for, by emailing fccla@nmctso.com.

Ultimate FCS Leadership Development Packages

Don't forget that this will expire on November 1. 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.

Competitive Events Guide

IT IS HERE!!!! The new guide is now available on both the advisor and student portals. It will include guidelines for virtual events as well.


You can download it below. Remember after November 1, you will need to be affiliated to have access to it in the portal.


Important Reminder: projects that were started last year, may NOT be submitted this year, per National restrictions. Therefore, if any project is discovered during competition that it was started before July 1, 2020, will be unable to advance to National.

Virtual Leadership Experience

FCCLA is offering the Virtual Leadership Experience (VLE), a new enrichment program for members and advisers to participate in virtually December 8, 2020 through February 12, 2021. The chapter cost to participate is $150.


The Virtual Leadership Experience is a great way to integrate FCCLA into your FCS classroom with expert career leaders and other FCCLA leaders providing information and resources focusing on FCS Career Pathways and FCCLA National Programs. This will include lesson plans and assessments that advisers may use in their classroom. It is a perfect way to teach virtually in your classroom.


Chapters will need to register for the Virtual Leadership Experience in order for members to participate in the Skill Demonstration Events and the top 40 Knowledge Bowl. We will be congratulating the Skill Demonstration Event top scorers and recognize the Knowledge Bowl participants on December 11, 2020.
