Day at the Capitol

February 12-15, 2018

General Information

Description: Legislators rely heavily on the viewpoints expressed by their local constituents when they make important decisions regarding education issues. By coming to Atlanta and actively participating in a day of visiting the Capitol and meeting with legislators, FCCLA members and advisers can be an effective voice for our organization. A visit to the Georgia Capitol also offers students an opportunity to view first-hand the state government in action and to learn about the judicial and lawmaking processes. Your chapter is encouraged to participate. 


Objective: To promote and inform legislators of the value of Family and Consumer Sciences programs and FCCLA chapters
