Thank you to everyone who attended the 2013 Capitol Leadership training and made the event a huge success!  FCCLA members and advisers developed leadership skills, participated in service-learning opportunities, advocated for Career and Technical Education, and gained valuable resources to take back home.  Mark your calendars for October 12-15, 2014, to join us in Washington, D.C., next year.
