LEADERSHIP IS NEEDED FOR MANY CAREERS!
As FCCLA members, we are presented with numerous opportunities to be a leader. Being a leader may not be as daunting as it sounds, leadership roles can come in various forms:
- Being a captain of a sports team
- Doing community service
- Becoming a FCCLA officer in your state, area, or chapter
Leadership is a valuable skill that is used throughout your entire life and developing your leadership skills during your high school career will only make you more prepared when presented with leadership roles later on in life. You may gain many leadership opportunities through FCCLA by participating in:
- National Leadership Conference: Attending the NLC will allow you to gain leadership experience while meeting new people and exploring new places.
- STAR Events: Doing a STAR Event will allow you to focus on an area of your interest while gaining many valuable life skills.
- State Conference: At State Conference, you can meet many people from your state and attend inspiring sessions with rewarding speakers.
