Capitol Leadership Experience 2020
33 FCCLA members representing all seven regions in California participated in the Capitol Leadership Experience in Sacramento on February 9–11 at the California Department of Education. In addition to observing Senate and Assembly committee hearings and floor sessions, they met with state legislators and staff to discuss the importance of Family and Consumer Sciences education and FCCLA. Members learned about their role in the legislative process, participated in mock legislative committee hearings where they discussed FCS related bills, and developed their communication, leadership, and teamwork skills.
