Engage your chapter in coming up with a chapter theme for your year- something that happens at each meeting, or something that you celebrate each month……
As most of you know, every year the Executive Council comes up with a new year-long theme for Minnesota FCCLA. This year, we are encouraging chapters to think of their own individual year-long themes or individual themes for each meeting. You may be wondering where to start or what you can do for a theme. The great part about this is that your chapter can choose almost anything they want for a theme or themes for meetings as long as they are FCCLA appropriate.
There are so many different options for theme ideas, and the fun part is working together as a chapter to make it creative and fun.
You could base it off of music genres, movies, TV shows, sports, holidays, and much more. As I stated before, this can be one theme for the whole year or a new theme for each meeting. The important part is to incorporate this theme or themes into your chapter’s meetings through decorations, activities, and whatever else your chapter can come up with.
Chapter themes are a great way to spruce up your meetings and attract more new members. Don’t be afraid to take plenty of awesome selfies that show your themes and post them to social media with #MNFCCLA! We love to see your great photos! We hope you have fun creating your themes and have a great rest of your school year!
