Advisers are the Subject Matter Experts: Please check the Career Development Events you are willing to evaluate. For every three Career Development Events participants, provide additional evaluator information.

The Office of Career-Technical Education and State FCCLA Office have the expectation that advisers will help facilitate these competitions in the role of Subject Matter Experts at the regional, state, and national levels. Without chapter advisers serving as event volunteers, evaluation teams may lack critical context and subject matter information that could negatively impact final scoring. In addition, the expectation that all advisers will demonstrate professionalism while working with other advisers, volunteers, and state staff during the evaluation of members projects to provide a positive competitive event atmosphere.

All Subject Matter Experts serving in a volunteer role will receive documentation of the hours devoted to competitive events. This documentation may be used by volunteers to assist with professional development certification, as allowed by local policies.

All invoices are final once submitted.
