Iowa FCCLA Day at the Capitol

Iowa Capitol Building, Des Moines—Members of the Clarinda FCCLA Chapter along with nearly 140 members from other FCCLA chapters across the state attended the Iowa FCCLA Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, February 7th.


Iowa FCCLA Day at the Capitol is an opportunity for Iowa FCCLA members to learn about the legislative process and why advocating for FCCLA is so important. In the morning, members took a tour of the Capitol and participated in Advocacy Training. Members experienced the legislative process in action as they talked to their legislators about specific issues in today’s society that FCCLA helps improve or solve. Carly Rahn, Saige Brown, Tia Sickler and Allison DeVoe were members of the Clarinda FCCLA Chapter who attended the event. Allison DeVoe serves at FCCLA State Vice President of Competitive Events. She helped plan the day for all chapters attending.


Day at the Capitol is one of many opportunities FCCLA offers in addition to Fall Leadership Rally, district meetings, National Cluster Meeting, and National Leadership Conference. FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America), 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 fifty state associations, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.  The organization has involved more than ten million youth since it was founded in 1945.
