Adviser Expectations with Career Development Events
Importance of Chapter Advisers serving as judges for regional, state and national CDEs. Chapter advisers are subject matter experts in both Family and Consumer Sciences, Hospitality and Tourism, Education and Training and FCCLA. As subject matter experts, they serve an important role in providing essential information about FCCLA, Family and Consumer Sciences, Hospitality and Tourism, Education and Training curriculum, and Career-Technical Education to both members and other adult volunteers. Without chapter advisers serving as event volunteers, evaluation teams may lack critical context and subject matter information that could negatively impact final scoring.
State Qualifiers
Advisers please be aware that this year all students will compete at the regional level. In order for a participant to be eligible to be considered for a state qualifier position they must score a minimum of a 75 or better no matter how many participants registered at the regional level. All state qualifiers will be announced the week of March 16 in the newsletter and will be posted on the website as well.
State Leadership Conference
Mark your calendars for April 23-24, 2020 Ohio FCCLA State Leadership Conference. We are excited to announce that Ford Driving Skills for Life will be on site April 23. Details will be coming. Once again there will be in-depth leadership training and leadership seminars along with the College and Career Expo. Registration costs:
