On Monday, September 16th, State President, Joey Vanek, had the opportunity to travel to the Oregon Capitol in Salem and witness House Bill 2912 and Senate Bill 498 be officially signed. Joey was able to meet with the Governor, and supporters of the House Bill. Also attending were, FBLA’S Western Region Vice President, Parker Snook, and Erika Mclntrye, Skills USA State Officer.
While in Salem Joey was able to see parts of the beautiful Capitol, and learn more about the history of our amazing state! “Seeing Governor Kitzhaber officially sign the bill was the best moment of the trip,” said Vanek. The experience gave him a proud feeling to be a member of an Oregon CTSO. With the 8 million dollar funding, Joey knows CTSO’s will be able to grow, and make Oregon’s future economy brighter!
The passing of the bill came with a lot of work. “It was the members passion that showed our representatives why Career and Technical Organizations, such as FCCLA, are vital for Oregon’s future,” said Vanek.
Thank you members and advisers for your hard work to help make sure that Career and Technical Student Organizations are apart of Oregon’s future.

Welcome everyone to the Oregon FCCLA website! My name is Bailey Wearin and I am your 2012-2013 State President. Your other state officers for this year are Eastern Region Vice President, Christopher Warnock; Western Region Vice President Joey Vanek; and State Secretary, Kailey Kell! We are all very excited about what a wonderful year this is going to be for Oregon FCCLA.
Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is the only student led organization that focuses on the family. Since 1945, FCCLA has been a great way to make a difference in your families, communities, and careers, prepare for adult life, meet new people, and have fun!
This summer, Oregon had 23 STAR event competitors at National Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. Members brought home 16 gold medals and seven silver medals. Everyone’s hard work paid off and wonderful memories were made! In August, State Officers also met in Portland with the other CTSO (Career Technical Student Organization) officers to get things going for the year.
This year, our main focus is increasing membership and recruiting new chapters around the state. Our membership campaign, 7UP, challenges every chapter around the state to recruit seven more members than they had last year. There are about seven affiliated chapters around the state, so if each chapter recruits at least seven new members we will have almost fifty new members!
Check the website often for upcoming events, information, and the state officer newsletter which will be updated twice a month! Also, be sure to check out the highlight event of the fall, the Oregon Leadership Institute which is being held November 4-5 in Bend Oregon! Registration deadline for OLI is October 16, 2012. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Oregon FCCLA is very excited about our new partnership with TRI Leadership Resources, LLC, an Oregon-based company that serves FCCLA and our sister Career Technical Student Organizations across the nation. TeamTRI will be working to provide leadership and management services to support our FCCLA Board of Directors, State Officers, local chapters, and all leaders who are helping to advance FCCLA in Oregon.
TRI’s staff counts more than 50 team members across the nation. While many of them will be supporting Oregon FCCLA, the key leaders we will be working with are Ryan Underwood and Brittani Parker.
Ryan Underwood was born and raised in Southern Oregon where he founded TRI twenty years ago. He was a three time state/national officer for FBLA and has since worked on the local, state, and national level to advance CTSOs and Career Technical Education with great distinction—including earning honorary FCCLA membership in Georgia and Oklahoma. Ryan, along with his wife and business partner, Carrie, now make their home Oklahoma with their two young daughters. While Ryan greatly misses his home in Oregon, he has found Oklahoma home to great people like his home state and that living in the center of the country allows him to easily get around the nation and still get home to his family. Ryan helped plan and create the grant that allows FCCLA to remain alive in Oregon. He brings great vision and a “can do” attitude to every project. His enthusiasm is contagious and his sense of humor makes him a pleasure to work with. He will be serving as our Executive Director.
Brittani is a former FCCLA member, state president, and National Vice President of Membership. She is passionate about FCCLA and Family and Consumer Sciences Education. She earned her degree with honors in Family and Consumer Sciences Education from Oklahoma State University and has been instrumental in supporting National FCCLA and individual states in program and leadership development. She also lives in Oklahoma where she serves on the Oklahoma FCCLA Foundation Board and brings a wealth of knowledge about FCCLA programs and expertise. She is young and energetic and remembers that having fun is an important part of FCCLA. Her positive attitude is inspiring. Brittani will be serving as our Associate Director.
Ryan and Brittani are honored and excited to be working with us. And, Oregon FCCLA looks forward to a long relationship with TRI Leadership and especially working closely with Ryan Underwood and Brittani Parker. Be sure to look for them at the State Leadership Conference and welcome them to Oregon FCCLA.
