All reports said the officers did a quality job of organizing the conferences. Next up will be Region 8 on Oct 12 and then 3 more regions hold theres the week of Oct 20-21-22.

What do regional officers learn in their year as an officer? " Public speaking foremost-I also got information about training, legsialtive day " said an officer from 2008-2009.
Another 2008-2009 officer said:" FCCLA is an awesome way to prepare for life in the "outside world" and to become a shining young person."

Youth Service Institute

MN FCCLA was represented by Garrett, Lauryn and Wendy at the Youth Service Institute in Washington DC October 6-9. It was awesome to be with the leaders of service-learning and youth leadership programs. We also a presented a workshop session about engaging elected officials with co-presenters from National Youth Leadership Council and National Service Learning Partnership. We heard awesome and inpiring stories from service learning experts such as: C.
