Georgia FCCLA State Leadership Conference Adviser Guide - MARCH 15-17, 2019
Hotel Information
Hotel Registration Deadline: February 21

In keeping with all guidelines and standards of National FCCLA, the following will be enforced for the 2019
State Leadership Conference:

    •   All attendees must stay in the official Georgia FCCLA hotel property assigned in order to participate in
        Georgia FCCLA Overnight Conferences (State and National). Georgia FCCLA will not provide a wavier
        policy regardless to participants’ proximity to the conference hotel. All participants will be required to
        stay in the conference hotel property (STAR Events and State Events participants, Officer Candidates,
        Statesmen Test participants, Scholarship Recipients, and all other registered participants.)

    •   Conference attendees must stay for the duration of the conference – at least two nights for the State
        Leadership Conference.

    •   Due to the limited number of multiple housing rooms in the hotels, double/double rooms will be used
        first as a quad for students, then as a twin for adults. Two adults may be assigned to a king or queen
        room. A rollaway may be available depending upon the property.

    •   Because of the large number of students involved, chapter advisors are asked to assume the
        responsibility for all charges incurred by their chapter.

    •   Members and/or chapters who do not stay in the assigned conference hotel will be disqualified from
        receiving scholarships, competitive event awards (of any level), chapter awards, and other recognitions.

Hotel Reservations
Hotel reservations will be completed through the conference registration system this year. Please follow the
step-by-step instructions in the Conference Registration tutorial at the end of this Adviser Guide.

Once registration closes, Georgia FCCLA export the information and send it directly to the hotel to make your
room reservations. You will receive a confirmation from the hotel within two weeks; however, the hotel pricing
information will show up on your registration invoice to be able to give this to the bookkeeper.

Please note: Hotel payments will need to be sent directly to the hotel. Conference registration payments will be
sent to Georgia FCCLA.

Do not call the hotel directly to book hotel rooms – you will not be allowed to obtain rooms in our block unless
you go through Georgia FCCLA.

Rooming rates are below. Rooms will be first come first served. Double bed rooms will only be utilized for 3-4
people.

be sent to Georgia FCCLA. Don’t forget to add a $5 charge per room per night for the Georgia Hotel Motel Fee
(tax exempt forms do not cover this $5 fee).

Members should be informed about telephone, movie costs, room service and other incidental costs.

Any reservation not cancelled within three days prior to arrival will incur a charge equal to a one night’s deposit.

***Please note: Registered attendees MUST be registered in a hotel room per the Board of Directors policy.

                                              9 – updated November 2018
FCCLA Dress Code
FCCLA members are expected to display a professional image at all functions. Members should always be respectful to
administrators, exhibitors, parents, advisers and other members. Advisers will ensure that students look professional
and in appropriate attire at all times. Students in inappropriate clothes will be asked to change clothes before returning
to the meeting.

STAR EVENTS PARTICIPANT DRESS
STAR Events participants are expected to adhere to the conference dress code for competitions, unless their specific
competitions allow for costumes. All STAR Events participants must wear conference attire for the STAR Events
Recognition Session, with the exception of Culinary Arts participants who may wear their chef attire.

STAR Events Orientation
The STAR Events Orientation will be led by STAR Events Lead Consultants on Friday night, March 15th, after the Opening
Session. Each event will have its own, separate orientation that is geared toward a specific event. FCCLA members will
sign in, be given a short orientation regarding guidelines and be given any changes. If a competitor does not attend this
orientation, points will be deducted according to the rubric, where it lists “Online Event Orientation”. Orientation will
not be online in Georgia. All STAR Events participants must attend the onsite orientation.

STAR Events will happen all day on Saturday. Members should be prepared to give their presentation in a large room,
with multiple presenters in the room at the same time. Please alert members to this strong possibility.

Culinary STAR Event
The Culinary STAR Event guidelines are specific to Georgia. Find these guidelines HERE. Culinary Arts STAR Events
Orientation will take place on Saturday morning, with competition starting promptly after orientation.

Butane burners and canisters are available for rent through the registration system.

opportunity in the online registration system. There are two opportunities:

assignment at 8:30 am on Saturday and serve until their event is finished. STAR Events participants CANNOT serve as
Competitive Events Runners due to the scheduling of events.

Ushers
Members will assist opening the doors immediately prior to the general sessions. The orientation for this duty will take
place 45 minutes before the opening of the AmericasMart, in front of the general session room.

promises made and kept. Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex and
his organization send “promise cards” to anyone anywhere in the
world at no cost. Alex is someone who truly honors commitment.
He once walked over 240 miles across the entire state of Ohio in 10
days to fulfill a promise. In just two
years, because I said I would has sent over 9.81 million promise
cards to over 153 different countries. The promises written on
these cards have made headlines around the world. His charitable
projects and awareness campaigns have been featured on ABC
World News with Diane Sawyer, CNN, The Today Show, NPR, The
Los Angeles Times and many other programs.”
