Alumni & Associates logo colorWelcome WA-FCCLA Alumni!

We are excited to have you join us! A group of active alumni have been working to get the WA-FCCLA Alumni Association established. These same men and women have led State Leadership Conference sessions, assisted with officer training and provided assistance at regional meetings. The WA-FCCLA members have greatly benefitted from their enthusiasm!

The Washington delegation of Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is proud to have an outstanding network of Alumni and Associates who continue to impact this organization’s membership in a positive and influential way. We are composed of former FCCLA, FHA/HERO members, and family and consumer sciences professionals who wish to continue their participation and give back to the organization after high school or college as well as, business or marketing professionals who are interested in helping to develop the next generation of family, career, and community leaders.

If you would like to learn more about Washington’s outstanding Alumni and Associates as well as continuing your journey with FCCLA please feel free to contact:
