Tis the season for applications!! December and January may bring snow days and cozy nights by the fire, and for Nebraska FCCLA members it brings the must needed snow days to work on Officer Applications and STAR event projects. So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!! Have you thought about how you could use those snow days to apply for an officer position. State officer positions are great ways to expand your leadership potential, meet new people, get to travel, and experience different opportunities. The whole experience of running for a state officer position is great to improve your skills at completing applications, writing and giving speeches, and interviews.
If you are interested in applying for an office here is something you need to think about. Talk with your adviser; they are great at guiding you in the right direction and can offer you many tips when it comes to running and what its like to be an officer. Check your schedule and make sure that you can make all the important meetings that you need to attend. Then you go to the Nebraska FCCLA website and fill out the application. Remember the more people that read it the better. Then get it in on time!!

So make sure you spend all those snowy days perfecting you officer application. Getting cozy by the fire and have a great holiday season. Nebraska FCCLA is so excited to meet all the new officer candidates for 2018 – 2019. If you have any questions feel free to contact a State Officer.
