2016-17 Chapter Activities for Recognition at
State Leadership Conference
Washington “SAY YES TO FCS” State Project
Have your Chapter complete the “Say YES to FCS” State Project! We need Family and Consumer Science Teachers! There IS a demand in Washington!
By completing this project, members will get the opportunity to demonstrate the knowledge and skills needed in planning, organizing, implementing and evaluating a marketing campaign to promote the career of Family and Consumer Sciences Education.
Each school will submit their marketing piece and evidence of the promotion of FCS as a career choice to Washington State FCCLA via email to me or mail by February 11, 2017 for recognition at the Washington State FCCLA Leadership Conference.
“PAVE THE WAY WITH FCCLA”
Increase your chapter membership and “PAVE the way with FCCLA.” The PAVE acronym is more than just a part of a slogan. PAVE is a strategy that will help chapters increase membership.
PAVE stands for:
“P” PROMOTE – By promoting FCCLA through your school, you are taking initiative to start advocating for new members
“A” ACCEPT – FCCLA is a leadership organization for EVERYONE. By accepting new members, you are welcoming them to the FCCLA Family.
“V” VISUALIZE – FCCLA is a student-led leadership organization. By visualizing, members will have the opportunity to help their family, career, and communities through chapter projects, STAR Events competitions and volunteering, and running for a state office.
“E” EMPHASIZE – By emphasizing, you are encouraging all your members to do something great and putting your plans into action. From providing a service to the community, having a stronger bond with your family, or being the best leader you can be, emphasizing the importance of FCCLA projects is the key. Leadership growth is the result.
By completing all of these steps, you have accomplished “PAVE the way with FCCLA.” Letters will be going out each month to encourage joining this campaign.
Every chapter that participates in this campaign will receive recognition at State Leadership Conference. In order to earn recognition, click on the link below to fill out the application!

SOCIAL MEDIA HASHTAG CHALLENGE
Social media is a great way to get the word out about FCCLA and keep up-to date with family, friends and members at the same time. My challenge each month will be how chapters promote FCCLA. Each Month, your chapter will need to take a short video of their participation in the challenge and post it on social media with the hashtag to promote the event. Chapters can do this by making a video on a chapter member’s phone then uploading and publicizing it to social media like, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. I will track all of the posts every week. At the end of every month I will pick a video that best represents the diversity of FCCLA.
