NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE MANDATORY DRESS CODE
Approved by FCCLA’s Board of Directors, July 2011, Updated 2015
The National Leadership Conference is an excellent opportunity for members to convey to others the positive and professional image of FCCLA. Members’ behavior in the hotels and throughout the National Leadership Conference is the only image others in the hotel and host city may ever have of our organization. Student conduct and dress should contribute to the positive and professional image of FCCLA. The FCCLA official blazer is always appropriate and strongly encouraged. Advisers and chaperones are responsible for enforcing the dress policy with their students. Delegates and guests not adhering to the dress policy will not be admitted into sessions.

Thank you for your cooperation and support in putting forth a positive image of FCCLA throughout the National Leadership Conference! 

Information about NLC 

NLC Attendance
If a chapter on the national team cannot attend, the next place chapter might be given the opportunity to represent PA FCCLA according to PA CEAT policy. Advisers of students on the national team should inform the state office of intentions to participate in NLC within one week after SLC in order for the next team to have time to arrange to attend.

NLC Registration
Chapter advisers will submit their NLC registration and fees directly to national headquarters.   On-line registration information and deadlines will be posted when it is released from nationals. Watch the national webpage at www.fcclainc.org.

Chapters will submit hotel registration and payment to the hotel.

       NLC delegates not staying at one of the official conference hotels may not participate in National STAR Events or be eligible to be elected to a national office.   Delegates who live
 more than 30 miles from the convention site and do not stay in one of the official meeting hotels will be assessed a meeting room fee of $25 each in order to register for the meeting.

STAR Events Volunteers
Attending FCCLA chapters must provide one STAR Events volunteer (evaluator or room consultant) for every three national STAR Events participants in order to meet the national quota.   The volunteer may be a student, chaperone or adviser.

Permission Form, Rules and Regulations
The PA FCCLA Permission Form / Publication Waiver and the Rules Acknowledgement Form from PA FCCLA SLC will be in effect for NLC.   Advisers do not need to send these again.   Advisers need to carry FCCLA National permission forms and school permission forms.

Adviser Act 48
If you need ACT 48 hours, please contact Mrs. Nadine Standley several weeks in advance of NLC to receive the correct paperwork.  Then carry the paperwork with you and fill it in while at NLC.  Get it signed by our FCCLA State Facilitator, Mrs. Nadine Standley while at NLC; and after NLC hand the form into your school for them to submit.

Travel Insurance
PA NLC attendees may purchase travelers insurance from the National FCCLA provider, from their home school or from a private provider.

Estimated Expense of NLC
Last year’s NLC trip expenses might help as you calculate how much to plan for this year:
    • FCCLA Registration $190/person
    • STAR Events Competition Fee $ 45/person
    • FCCLA shirt (required at conference meetings) $ 15-35
    • Housing: $230/night @ 5 nights plus taxes; this amount is divided by the number of people staying in the hotel room. 
    • Transportation: could be as high as $700/person.
    • Food: In general, runs between $30 - $40 per day depending on how thrifty you are in selecting the restaurant.
    • Sightseeing: Your choice.
Trader Pins
Trader Pins will NOT be available for purchase from the state officers at National Leadership Conference.  Chapters are encouraged to provide their own pins for trading.

State Meetings
State Meetings may be held at NLC to share information and create friendships between chapters.   Meeting times and locations are announced prior to NLC through email.
