The following dress code has been developed for all students, advisers, alumni, and guests attending any Michigan FCCLA activity.

 

One of FCCLA’s primary goals is to prepare its members to enter the workforce, which includes how to dress properly in employment situations. Delegates at every activity are always representing Michigan FCCLA; therefore, it is necessary for delegates to be in appropriate attire at all times. It is important to remember that evaluators, sponsors, and vendors develop an impression of Michigan FCCLA based on its members’ appearance and conduct at these conferences.
