National Leadership Conference

Reset, Renew, and Recharge “Beyond Measure” at the 2021 National Leadership Conference

The in-person version of the 2021 National Leadership Conference (NLC) is now SOLD OUT, but you still have the opportunity to soar “Beyond Measure” at NLC!

At this time, we invite you to register to attend NLC virtually on the FCCLA online platform. Offering attendees the same Ultimate Leadership Experience as the in-person conference, the NLC virtual platform includes six rooms to explore jam-packed with professional development opportunities for Family and Consumer Sciences educators and leadership and career exploration sessions for youth attendees.

Depending on the available conference and lodging facilities and COVID-19 regulations, the conference capacity may increase. FCCLA continues to monitor the capacity limits and will adjust registration accordingly.

A waitlist has been created for those still wishing to attend the conference in-person. To be placed on the waitlist, interested attendees must first register for the virtual conference and select to be added to the waitlist for the in-person location. If in-person conference registration openings become available, FCCLA will contact the registrants on the waitlist in the order that registrants signed up.

Whether you’re attending in-person or virtually, FCCLA looks forward to seeing you lead “Beyond Measure,” June 27-July 2, 2021, at the 2021 National Leadership Conference!

Service projectWeHelpTwo

This year National FCCLA is partnering with WeHelpTwo to make a positive change by selling funky socks. Yes, funky socks can change lives! National FCCLA wants to make twice the impact by using the funds raised from the first 100 socks sold to provide children born around the world with club feet with corrective braces as a part of the Socks for Clubfoot program. After the first 100 socks are sold, FCCLA’s Ultimate Leadership Fund will receive a portion of the sales. In addition, for every pack of socks sold, one pair of socks will be donated to a local community homeless shelter. In-person attendees will also have the ability to decorate donated leg braces.

Sock can be purchased virtually (link coming soon) or on site at the in-person conference.
