FCCLA Fall Leadership Conference Goes Virtual

September 29, 2020

By: Tanyn Larson, freshman at Leigh High School

The old Leigh High School building was the unlikely setting for a state-wide leadership conference this past week.  No, students from across the state did not meet there in person, but it provided a nice setting for officers from the Leigh-Clarkson FCCLA chapter to gather to meet with other schools virtually for the conference. 

All officers and advisor Mrs. Megan Hillen took part in listening to the FCCLA Fall Leadership Workshop (FLW) on  Monday, September 21. This conference was supposed to originally be held in Kearney, but due to Covid-19, everyone participated via Zoom. 

FLW is a great opportunity for chapter officers to develop their leadership skills and FCCLA knowledge.  The conference started with an opening session, then shortly after, it broke into groups, and individuals could join a Zoom breakout meeting that most interested them. 

The officers then moved on to a lunch break and, again, after the break had time to join zoom meetings that most interested them. Some of these zoom meetings included how to better your chapter, how to get more members to join FCCLA in your chapter, and how to fill your officer spot and do the tasks expected. 

As the day came to end they had a final break out session to do some fun activities over zoom. They then ended their day with a closing session. 

Overall, the feedback of the day was very positive.

Sophomore officer Jessica Hoffman said, “It was definitely different from the Fall Leadership conferences that are normally held in person, but overall it was a very good experience. We learned all sorts of new ways to fundraise, different recruitment ideas, and different ways to use Zoom, while also taking personal meetings over each of our offices. I learned a lot about the role of district representative, and am glad we were still able to have the conference, even though it was not in person.”
