The CT Affiliate is completing the plans for a Spring Meeting being held May 3, 2022, at the Courtyard by Marriott.  The title is Shifting the Focus where the wellness needs of our youth will be the focus. 

  • Workshops will zero in on Connecticut students and their health needs.
  • An update on a National project that addresses FCS educators and retention efforts that need to be made for these professionals. The information will provide valuable information for current and potential educators.
  • A description of Connecticut’s FCCLA organization and its impressive leadership qualities will be led by a panel of FCCLA students.

The event promises an afternoon of workshops, presenters, business meeting, dinner, and awards.  Networking throughout the timeframe will give several opportunities to catch up and share ideas.  Attendees always appreciate this time together.   There is something for everyone.   In addition, we look forward to meeting our student scholarship winners.
