Members and advisers of FCCLA are representing an outstanding student organization and should project the image of a leader. FCCLA’s seventh purpose is “to prepare for the multiple roles of men and women in today’s society”; therefore, an important part of the educational experience provided by FCCLA includes developing an understanding of appropriate behavior and dress for business meetings and functions. Demonstrating professional image, extending courtesies, and behaving in a professional manner will lead to a pleasant and rewarding meeting experience. Members, advisers, and guests should follow the dress code guidelines when attending Missouri FCCLA events.
Students and Other Youth Attendees

STAR Events Participants
STAR Events participants should follow the dress requirements found in individual event guidelines. Please note: The dress guidelines have changed slightly for the 2023-2024 school year, so all participants should pay special attention to requirements.
National FCCLA is requiring official dress for ALL STAR Events (with the exception of Baking & Pastry and Culinary Arts), but Missouri FCCLA will NOT reduce points on the Dress Code category of the Point Summary Page at State Leadership Conference this year as long as the participant is dressed in the official Missouri dress code as described above. Note that participants will have to follow National FCCLA official dress at National Leadership Conference, should they advance.
State Leadership Conference – TUESDAY ONLY
On Tuesday, March 19, 2024 ONLY, conference attendees may wear the official conference t-shirt with jeans. Jeans must be free of rips, holes, or distressing of any kind. If jeans and the official conference t-shirt are not worn, the official dress will be required.
