Volunteer to Evaluate Competitive Events

Chapter advisers and members

Chapter advisers and members can volunteer to assist with these events by completing the volunteer sign-up process as part of their 2023 NLC registration in the FCCLA Portal.

State Associations

State associations are responsible for providing one evaluator and/or room consultant for every three event participants. Evaluation teams consisting of members, advisers, and business and industry professionals will be assigned representing different FCCLA regions.

Alumni, INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS, School Admin, Etc.

Alumni & Associates members, business and industry partners, community members, school administrators, state education staff, and postsecondary FCS education students are encouraged to volunteer to assist with these events. Click here to submit the volunteer interest form.
