The National Association for Family & Community Education (National FCE) charters groups at the community, county and state level to use the FCE name and promote FCE programs, including the FCL program, to their own members as well as the community at large.
National FCE provides the support service necessary to help the chartered group succeed in their use of the program.
Groups at the community, county and state level may obtain a charter agreement from the National FCE Headquarters. The agreement must be filled out with the official name of the chartered group, the year the group became an FCE affiliate and signed by an authorized representative of the chartered group. The agreement is then returned to National FCE Headquarters and an official charter is issued.
