Advising an FCCLA chapter can be an excellent adventure with rich rewards, a stronger FCS program, closer relationships with students, and personal and professional recognition.
Who is eligible to be a member of FCCLA?
Any student who has taken a course in Family and Consumer Sciences, or as determined by the state department of education, middle school through grade 12 is eligible for active membership in an organized FCCLA chapter within their school. Once the state and national dues are paid, the student will be an official affiliated member. Teachers can join FCCLA too! Teachers certified to teach Family and Consumer Sciences education, or as determined by the state department of education, can serve as the FCCLA chapter adviser.
