The Idaho FCCLA State Leadership Conference and FCCLA National Leadership Conference are excellent opportunities for members to convey to others the positive and professional image of Idaho FCCLA. Members’ behavior in the hotel and throughout the State and National Leadership Conferences maybe the only image others in the hotel and host city may ever have of our organization. Student conduct and dress should contribute to the positive and professional image of Idaho FCCLA.

Advisers are responsible for enforcing the dress policy with their students. Delegates not adhering to the dress policy will not be admitted into conference sessions.
