The FCCLA Planning Process

The FCCLA Five Step Planning Process is the chapter management tool that helps members select and carry out projects to fit their needs and concerns. It is also a great tool for advisors too! Use it to identify steps to starting a new chapter!

  • Identify Concerns: Brainstorm concerns, evaluate listed concerns, and narrow to one workable ideas.
  • Set a Goal: Get a clear mental picture of what you want to accomplish.
  • Write it down and evaluate it.
  • Form a Plan: Figure out the who, what, when, where and how of your plan.
  • Act: Carry out the project and keep a record of your progress.
  • Follow Up: Evaluate the project, thank people involved and recognize participants.
