Iowa FCCLA Leadership Conference 2012

DES MOINES — The Centerville Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Chapter along with over 500 members from FCCLA chapters across the state attended the Iowa FCCLA State Leadership Conference on March 26-27 at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines.

State Leadership Conference is an opportunity for Iowa FCCLA members to celebrate the past year of hard work on various projects as well as develop their leadership skills with members from around the state. The 2011-2012 yearlong theme was "Limitless Leadership." Limitless leadership was demonstrated through participation in STAR events, national programs and peer education.

Students Taking Action with Recognition events are competitive events which members are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, career preparation and leadership. The members receiving the highest score in each event category qualify to move onto the National STAR event competition held at the 2012 National Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla. Members from the Centerville chapter received the following medals in their respective categories: Hope Hancox-Silver, recycle and redesign; Emily Steinbach-Bronze, illustrated talk.

FCCLA, formerly FHA, teaches students financial literacy, health and nutrition, career preparation and early childhood development skills through Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA is a unique organization because its programs are planned and run by student members.  It is the only student-led organization with the family as its central focus. FCCLA has more than 220,000 members and nearly 7,000 chapters in 50 state associations, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than 10 million youth since it was founded in 1945.

Their mission is to promote growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education.
