Bringing in Spring
Spring could quite possibly be the grandest time of the year because it plays so many roles. It is the return of warmer weather, time for spring break, and most importantly, time for FCCLA state leadership conferences!
From February until the end of April, members are gathering together to celebrate ultimate leadership at the state level. From competing in STAR Events, to meeting new friends, attending workshops, or running for a state office, FCCLA is certainly buzzing with activity this season. State conferences are a great time for members to continue to grow as leaders, and also to receive recognition for the many accomplishments they have made throughout the year. Members will also begin to plan their journey to Soar with National FCCLA this summer at the 2014 National Leadership Conference in San Antonio!
As we wait for summer to roll around, there are a variety of exciting activities and opportunities available to members at the national level throughout this wonderful season:
- FCCLA scholarships are a great way to earn money for continuing your education, or for attending national-level FCCLA activities. The deadline for these scholarships is April 1, 2014, so be sure to turn your applications in on time.
- The national organization is focusing on growing its social networks this season through the #FCCLASocialSpring campaign. Do your part to help us reach our goals by connecting with National FCCLA’s social media accounts, and inviting your friends to do the same.
- If you’re interested in running for a position on the National Executive Council, those applications are due May 1, 2014. Don’t miss out on this amazing experience to maximize your leadership in FCCLA.
I hope that all members and advisers have a fabulous spring! Best of luck to those who will be competing, and I can’t wait to see you all this summer!
