Welcome Branch Officers!
We created this special section just for you as a one-stop shop for important information. We will be continously adding helpful information so be sure to check back often.
If there is something that you think would be useful for other branch officers, please email our Fraternal Director, with your suggestions.
New wording, new design, new color! The new ones (which are yellow in color) will be replacing the old ones (gray). Please do not hang onto or send out the old ones (gray). When you receive the new ones (yellow), throw away all of the old ones!

Matching Funds Guidelines
The FCSLA Matching Funds program is a way for branches to get involved in
the community to raise money for charitable and benevolent causes. The projects
should be a branch sponsored activity and should invite all area members to
participate in the activity. Below are the guidelines and forms you'll
need for the program.
Join Hands Day
Join Hands Day is a national event that unites young people and adults in
an effort to make their neighborhoods better. The event is held every year. FCSLA encourages each branch to hold its own Join Hands Day event to link our Association with the community.
