FCCLA is a wonderful opportunity for students to get involved in school while improving their leadership skills. What we do will depend entirely on the membership. Members may be as involved as they choose. They have the opportunity to achieve a member of distinction status as well as attend local, regional, state, and national meetings. Our local chapter has a small budget and we usually assist with transportation, but members may be responsible for other expenses and/or fundraising if they choose to participate.

If you have any questions contact an organization member or email Katelyn Edwards, Local Advisor/FACS Instructor at jyille@cameronschools.org.
