  • General Registration Information
    • Each person attending the conference or any part of the conference must be officially registered. Each registrant will receive a computer-generated name badge that serves as admission to all sessions and workshops.
    • Registration is required to participate in all sessions including general sessions, Competitive Events, exhibits, and the FCCLA store.
    • All students and advisers must be submitted on an affiliation invoice to register for the 2022 National Fall Conference to receive the lower registration rate.
    • Guests including parents, chaperones, and/or school administrators must be registered by an affiliated chapter or State Adviser in the FCCLA portal.
    • You must click the ‘Submit Registration' button and ‘Confirm’, creating an invoice to be considered officially registered.
    • All attendees, including guests and family members, are expected to adhere to the board-approved dress code policy found here. Please review the dress code policy before arriving on site.
    • Registration packets will only be distributed to attendees with a zero balance or by securing the balance with another form of payment when picking up registration materials.
    • If you register for the conference and do not cancel prior to the deadline or are a “no-show,” your chapter will be responsible for the balance due. Your chapter will not be able to register for future national conferences/meetings or affiliate until the balance has been paid in full.
    • It is the responsibility of the adviser/chaperone to provide supervision to their student(s) throughout the entire conference. Therefore, all advisers/ chaperones must register for the entire conference.
    • Official conference badges must be worn to all conference functions. Replacement badges may be purchased at the FCCLA Registration Desk for $5. All money collected will go to the Ultimate Leadership Fund to directly support members and chapters through grants.
    • Children under nine years of age are discouraged from attending conference sessions. Children and family members who attend conference sessions must register for the conference and pay all event fees.
    • To expedite registration material pick-up and avoid long lines, we are asking advisers to schedule a registration appointment time. The registration confirmation email will include the link to schedule your registration material pick-up time.

    • It is in everyone's best interest to ensure anyone who feels unwell does not travel to the conference. If you have been directly exposed to someone with a positive COVID-19 test or tested positive yourself within five (5) days (after November 5, 2022) of the conference, please stay home, and FCCLA will issue your chapter a full credit, less a $25 administrative fee per attendee cancellation, to your chapter's account for future invoices. Please keep in mind that you can also substitute the individual's registration for another student, adviser, or guest within your chapter.
    • To receive the credit, the cancellation must be submitted in the FCCLA Portal by selecting the 'Cancel/Substitute Request' button by November 10, 2022. Be sure to select the cancellation reason of 'COVID-19 Symptoms/Exposure'.  Supporting documentation (i.e., official test results, signed statement/letter from parent) will need to be uploaded with the cancellation submission.
