National Elections Information 

Are you a member looking for FCCLA leadership opportunities?  Are you interested in running for national office?  You've come to the right place! 

Candidates, their chapter and state advisers, nominating committee members, and voting delegates should review the information below carefully to ensure they are fully prepared. 

Elections Releases – All potential National Officer Candidates and their chapter and state advisers should become familiar with the Elections Releases.  Check back often throughout the spring for new information.

2014 National Elections Step-by-Step Guide – A comprehensive guide to the election process written for candidates. 

2014-2015 National Executive Council/Adviser Handbook – This handbook is full of information essential to the 2014-2015 National Executive Council and their chapter advisers.  Elected officers and their advisers are expected to be familiar with the content of the handbook.  

2014 National Officer Candidate Intent to Run Form – This form indicates a candidate’s commitment to run for a national office and helps national staff ensure that all candidates’ applications are accepted so deadlines for conference logistics and the election process are met. The form must be completed no later than April 15, 2014, but may be submitted any time after a candidate has been formally approved to run by their state association. 

2014 National Officer Candidate Application (WORD/PDF) – The NOC Application is a combination of releases and support forms and a tool for determining a candidate’s eligibility and qualifications.  The application must be postmarked by May 1, 2014. 

2014 National Elections Speech Topic – All candidates must develop a speech centered on the official speech topic.  Speeches must be no longer than three minutes.  Props and costumes are not allowed.  The speech will be delivered during NOC Nominating Committee interviews and the NOC Speeches session. 

Today's society often tolerates mediocrity instead of challenging people to achieve their greatest potential. How does FCCLA empower youth to soar and reach beyond mediocrity to success?

2014 NOC Test Study Guide – This study guide is meant to be a tool to help candidates study the appropriate FCCLA resources and understand the types of questions that will be asked on the test.  Test questions will not be taken directly from the study guide so candidates should study the resources thoroughly and prepare accordingly.  Coming Spring 2014
