   Adviser Input Requested!

FCCLA offers different categories of STAR Events - Junior, Senior,

Occupational, and Postsecondary. The National Board of Directors has

established a task force to look into the current categories and to determine if they still meet chapter needs. Please take a few moments to complete the adviser survey and share your opinion. A similar survey was emailed to all 2014 National STAR Events participants to collect data on how they also perceive the categories.
