  • General Housing Policies

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

    Attendees not staying within the official conference hotel block will be assessed a $125 fee per registration. This policy will not be implemented once the hotel block is sold out. Lack of availability of a preferred room type will not provide an exemption from this policy.

    All National Leadership Conference attendees must register to attend the entire conference and stay within the official conference hotel block for a required minimum of four (4) nights. In any extenuating circumstance, a written waiver may be submitted via the State Adviser to National FCCLA Staff for consideration.

    When making hotel reservations, use the online booking link for booking 1 to 25 rooms or the housing form for ten (10) rooms or more. For the safety and security of all guests and attendees, all guests staying in each room must be listed on that room reservation.

    Please note: Room reservation cancellations made after May 15, 2024, will incur a non-refundable fee of $450.
