Alumni and Associates News
Ohio FCCLA Alumni and Associates Need You

The organization is looking for a group or individual to volunteer to take over the alumni sales inventory and trailer after April 2017 SLC meeting. We are willing to train and help you get started. The Ohio FCCLA Alumni and Associates uses the sales of FCCLA merchandise to create finances to provide scholarships and other items for the Ohio FCCLA program. It is our fear that if we can't find a group or individual willing to take this over, the onsite sales at Fall Leadership and SLC meeting may come to an end.
