FCCLA Elections and Procedures

Officer Elections

Member commitment and involvement are vital to the health of any organization. Taking a leadership role beyond the chapter level provides students opportunities for improving leadership skills, personal growth, meeting new people, travel and involvement, being a spokesperson for FCCLA and helping the organization reach its goals. Members wishing to run for regional, state and/or national office must be enthusiastic, knowledgeable about FCCLA, energetic, innovative, futuristic and must also be committed to the organization.

Each family and consumer sciences program should receive information on regional screening procedures and deadlines from the regional president and advisors. Questions regarding regional elections should be directed to them.
