Welcome to 2017-18!
Washington is a direct affiliation state. This means both state and national dues are paid directly to the National FCCLA office. The national office then returns the state portion of the dues to the WA-FCCLA Executive Director’s office.
FCCLA dues are $15 per member ($6.00 for WA state dues + $9 national dues). All Advisers must pay dues. Members must belong to both the state and the national organizations.
A minimum of 12 members is required to affiliate, however, you can enter less than 12 member names, pay for 12, establishing a credit until the time you enter those additional members.
Chapters receive the most benefits from the organization when at least 12 members are affiliated by November 1. Chapters that affiliate by NOVEMBER 1 will be able to:
- access the Competitive Events Guide
- receive the Teen Times magazine
- are eligible to purchase FCCLA items at the affiliated chapter prices
- begin receiving FACTS Newsletters from Nationals
- receive State FCCLA Adviser Newsletters
- and are allowed one additional State Leadership Conference delegate
Remember, you can become an affiliated chapter with less than 12 members by paying for 12.
Members must be affiliated prior to Regional STAR Events in order to participate. Regional STAR Events occur in January. START AFFILIATION EARLY AND AVOID LAST MINUTE STRESS!!
Congratulations to the following Chapters that affiliated by
It is important that you check with your district IT folks to determine whether your computer can access the on-line affiliation system. If your school computer cannot access the on-line affiliation system, you may need to affiliate from your home computer.
There is NO paper affiliation process. You must affiliate on-line.
You are not affiliated until your online information has been “Submitted” AND your money (not the PO) has been received by Nationals. START EARLY.
You can affiliate less than 12 members by paying for 12. You will then show a credit on your account and can continue to add members without additional cost until you exceed the 12th member. All Chapter Advisers will be billed for their dues.
