PA FCCLA Membership Campaign

Encouraging New Members

Rev up your Chapter

Recruit, Retain, Recognize


The purpose of the Membership Campaign is to give chapters things to do to help recruit new members and retain current members. During recruiting and retaining tasks, showcase your chapter as a resume builder through projects and community service but also as a place to build friendships and have fun. During recognizing tasks, showcase your chapter successes as a way to build chapter notoriety for member accomplishments.
