Timberlake FCCLA chapter members challenged to become active and involved and "Take AIM"
October 20, 2021
Members of the Timberlake FCCLA chapter participated in the 2021 Oklahoma FCCLA Take AIM Conference Oct. 7 at the Stillwater Community Center in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Take AIM stands for Active and Involved Members and is open to younger FCCLA members, encouraging them to get involved in the organization, chapter, and community. Leadership and team-building activities helped members see that they too can get involved and become an outstanding leader.
"This conference is so important to growing our younger member's leadership, self-awareness and confidence," said State Adviser Brittani Phillips. "By offering this conference, we are growing strong leaders today for our communities tomorrow. I have no doubt we will see these young leaders do great things throughout their high school career and later in life."
Facilitating the conference was Kelly Barnes. Students learned about various topics such as personal leadership, team building, communication and prioritizing responsibilities. Chapter advisers had the opportunity to attend professional development centered on the new FCCLA Meat Identification competition, sponsored by the Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee. Greg Highfill of Woods County OSU Extension presented competition tips and training. Advisers also participated in Culinary Food Arts training provided by Cali Crissup, Founder/CEO of Social 174 – Stilly Snack Spreads.
