Official Hotels

All conference sessions will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C. The convention center and conference hotels are very convenient to many dining and entertainment options. Additional hotels may be added based on registration counts. In the event the additional hotel(s) is not within walking distance transportation may be provided.

FCCLA’s Board of Directors has set the following Housing Policy

FCCLA Delegates, Competitors, and National Officer Candidates attending the National Leadership Conference must register to attend the entire conference and stay within the official meeting/ conference hotel block for the length of the conference. In any extenuating circumstances, a written waiver may be submitted via the State Adviser to National FCCLA staff for consideration prior to the reservation deadline.

Attendees not staying within the official meeting/conference hotel block will be assessed a $125 fee per registration. All National Officer Candidates and students participating in Competitive Events must stay in the official hotel block. The $125 fee is not an option for these registrants. This policy will not be implemented once the hotel block is completely sold out. Availability of a preferred room type will not provide an exemption from this policy. 

NEW! National FCCLA no longer assigns state delegations to specific hotels. In some cases, state advisers have secured a block of rooms on behalf of their state delegation. Please note: National FCCLA cannot require attendees to stay at the hotel their state adviser has selected.

ATTENTION: Orchid.Events is the official housing provider for FCCLA’s 2020 National Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. Solicitation of hotel reservations from any other company is not authorized by National FCCLA and may have inaccurate room inventory, unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitation to National FCCLA at or call 703.476.4900.
