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.
