6.SLOGANS: Develop a slogan for attracting new interest in FCCLA

7.BRING FCCLA TO THEM AT ANOTHER EVENT: Use a football or volleyball game, another school activity and set up a table, bring a message or tell the participants about FCCLA’s dynamic programs.

8.SOCIAL MEDIA MESSAGE WITH CURRENT MEMBERS: Post a video, Facebook message or tweets from members to potential members.

9.SERVICE PROJECT NIGHT: Use a service project to market FCCLA as members who care. Do leaf raking for elders, do a school service effort, help senior citizens with e mails, or do a children’s event during a school activity. Be known as the teens with a mission!

10.BRING IN THE EXPERTS: Invite a region, state, national or peer ed officer to come to your school.
