Registration & Rates

Preparing to Attend

Step 1. Register for National Fall Conference

All registrations occur in the FCCLA portal. Before you register, the items listed below must be complete:

  • All prior invoices must be paid.
  • All students and advisers attending must be affiliated (submitted and on an invoice) to receive the member rate.

Step 2. Reserve Hotel Room(s)

FCCLA contracts with hotels in cities where the nationally sponsored meetings are held.  Room rates and cost of meeting space are based on an anticipated room pick-up. It is important that FCCLA attendees stay within the official conference hotel block when attending the conference.

Step 3. Book Travel

Now that you have registered for the conference and booked your hotel room(s), it is time to make your travel arrangements. Ensure that the hotel is available on your preferred travel dates before making transportation arrangements to avoid any change fees.
