Host a County or Regional Rally Using Virginia FCCLA's Toolkit: FCCLA in a Flash

Chapter Adviser Recertification Points Form
Advisers to affiliated Virginia FCCLA chapters may complete this form to request recertification points from the school division for carrying out FCCLA activities outside of class time . Because FCCLA is a co-curricular part of your program, only time spent outside of regular school hours can be counted. For each hour spent, one recertification point can usually be earned. Keep in mind that the final decision for awarding points is left up to local administrators.

Virginia FCCLA's Adviser-to-Adviser Leaders
Virginia has two experienced chapter advisers serving annually as leaders of the state adviser-to-adviser network.  Their contact information is listed below.  Kathleen Buchanan, Virginia FCCLA's Membership and Adviser Development Coordinator will assist in the mentoring advisers and will coordinate the national recognition process for Master Adviser and Adviser Mentor.  Kathleen will provide assistance to advisers in affiliation, membership strategies, and program implementation.  Chapter advisers are encouraged to contact these outstanding adult leaders for assistance in implementing FCCLA into the Family and Consumer Sciences curriculum.
