FCCLA Leadership

Regional Information

The Missouri Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is made up of fourteen regions with local chapters within the region. The purpose of the regional level is to provide meetings that will offer training and an understanding of the total FCCLA organization. Each region holds a fall meeting during which leadership training sessions are held.

Regional officers are elected to provide leadership for the region, plan and carry out the regional meeting and to help the chapters within the region. The procedure for their election will vary in accordance with the bylaws of the region.

Regional officers have an opportunity to be involved in Family, Career and Community Leaders of America above the local level. This involvement requires a greater understanding of FCCLA to be able to transfer knowledge of the organization to other members. A regional officer is to be a regional, state, and national affiliated member in good standing on the local level and be willing to take on added responsibility.

Regional Meetings - Each fall, the 14 Missouri FCCLA Regions hold Regional Meetings. For information on the Regional Meeting, contact the Regional President and Regional Advisor.
