We know that everyone has been hard at work fundraising and we can’t wait to see you in San Antonio at the National Leadership Conference where we will learn to SOAR!
We hope that you are excited to visit an awesome city, compete in STAR Events, gain new leadership skills, and last but not least have a great time! You may be all pumped up for this once in a lifetime chance, but what might you be diving into?
To ensure you have the best possible experience, we wanted to make sure you are thoroughly prepared. Here is the weather forecast and some items to remember to bring. The forecast calls for high 90’s and some clouds all the way through the 9th. Then on the 10th there is the chance for some thunderstorms. Overall your trip should be relatively nice. With this hot weather remember sunscreen. Also, Texas is known to be humid, we also suggest you keep water with you to stay hydrated. Those are just some of the less mandatory items to bring, but they will make your trip more pleasant.
The more essential items to bring, include plenty of dress clothes, money for food and tips, and of course all your materials for your presentation. To make sure you stay within the guidelines of the conference dress code visit http://www.fcclainc.org/content/meetings/ to find what is required. Throughout the conference, it is also important to know when and where you need to be. To ensure that you are always on time here is a link to the NLC schedule. Remember to always be on leader time and be early to each event. It is better to be early and have to wait then to show up late and miss out on something. Two events that you don’t want to miss are the Oregon delegation state meetings and picture. The first state meeting is Monday, July 7th at 8:30 p.m. in the Marriott Rivercenter and the second one is on Tuesday, July 8th at 5:00 p.m in the Convention Center. The state picture will be Sunday, July 6th at 5:40 p.m. Be sure to always reference your conference program to find out when and where different meetings and events are taking place.
Before you leave for your trip, double check and triple check everything to ensure that you forget nothing. The State Officer Team wishes you the best of luck at NLC! We look forward to meeting each of you throughout the week!
FCCLA’s National Leadership Conference is just around the corner, and we could all use some extra spending money for San Antonio. Here are some simple but, great fundraising ideas to help you prepare for your trip to Texas.Can Drive: So many people have leftover aluminum cans and glass bottles lying around, and many of them are willing to donate to your cause. Once you collect a good amount, spend a couple hours recycling them at a local grocery store or recycling center. Also, you are helping the environment by recycling.
Bake Sale: Who doesn’t love a good cupcake or chocolate chip cookie? Bake up some of your favorites treats and sell them during a community event or in front of a local business.
Car Wash: It’s getting warmer outside, and this popular idea can help you raise quite a bit of money. Just get a few people from your chapter together, add some soap, water, sponges, towels and you’re set!
Pancake Feed: Many restaurants, will allow you to host pancake feeds in their restaurants. See if there are any locations around you or host one at your school. If a pancake feed doesn’t work out, see if the restaurant will sponsor “FCCLA Night” where anyone that comes in and mentions FCCLA, 10% of the bill will go to your chapter.
Yard Work: All you have to do is go around your neighborhood and see if anyone would like you to do yard work or any other job for them. It’s fairly easy, and a great way to earn some extra cash.
Babysitting: Have any family members or friends with young kids? Offer to babysit for them one night while they go out.
Hopefully, these ideas can help you in raising money for your trip to NLC this summer. If you have another great idea, be sure and let us know by telling us on Facebook or twitter @oregonfccla.
