The State Officer Experience

If I could describe being a State Officer with one word, it would be this: Awesome! But I need a lot more than one word to really tell you about the amazing experience that is being a State Officer. Running for a State Officer was nerve racking, but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in the world.

            One of the benefits of being a State Officer is the amazing leadership training that you receive. You get to work with Tri Leadership to learn how to be an effective leader. Expanding your leadership skills comes with endless benefits that can help you in so many ways. From learning how to advocate for your organization to improving your public speaking, you learn skills that you will use throughout your whole life.

            Another great thing about being a State Officer is that you get to meet so many amazing young student leaders! The State Officers from FCCLA, DECA, FBLA, HOSA, and Skills USA often work together. This means that you get to meet people from all around your state that have one thing in common with you: a passion for student leadership. The friendships that come from this can last a lifetime!

            Not only do you get to expand your leadership skills and meet new people, but you also get to advocate for your organization as a State Officer. FCCLA is a student-led organization. As a State Officer, you have a huge role when it comes to making things happen within your organization. Getting to advocate for something that you are passionate about is a great feeling.

            If you are considering running for a State Office, I would strongly encourage you to do so. The things that you learn and the experiences that you gain are irreplaceable! If you have any questions about running for a State Office, contact your State Officers today!
