It’s Showtime! UAFCS 2020 Virtual Conference
Visit We are so excited to still be able to host the UAFCS Conference in a virtual format. We are looking forward to our virtual industry tours with Creminelli Fine Meats, Aggie Chocolate Factory and Curate Company. We hope that this conference not only provides you with new skills to apply in your classrooms, but also serves as a reminder of how amazing each you are as Family and Consumer Science Educators. You really are the stars! More now than ever, we can step up to the challenges that are presented to us, and show off our talents and abilities to the world. Three, two, one, action! It’s Showtime!
The Virtual Conference will be using canvas as our conference platform. Access to the canvas course will begin on Sept. 21 and will be open for two weeks for attendees to watch prerecorded sessions. The last day the course will be open will be Saturday Oct. 3.
Since we wish we could be with you, we have decided to send a swag “box” to all attendees. Members of UAFCS will receive an added gift to their swag boxes. Wish to become a UAFCS Member? Visit the tab "Join the Utah Affiliate" at the top of this page!

I have a great passion for Family and Consumer Sciences! I grew up in the FCS world. My mother was a FCS teacher and from the time I was six years old I knew I wanted to be a FCS teacher too. I love what I teach and I feel the FCS courses students take are the most valuable courses of their educational journey.
I feel a great need to open lines of communication to decision making stakeholders about the incredible things FCS teachers are doing in their classrooms. Promoting our programs to administrators, guidance counselors, parents, students, industry leaders, lawmakers, and anyone else who will listen is vital in maintaining and building our FCS programs. I hope we will unite to network and collaborate on ways we can promote the value of FCS courses in family life, community activity, and workforce participation.
I look forward to serving as the UAFCS President this year and associating with all the amazing FCS teachers in our great state. #utahfcs #sayyestofcs #familyandconsumersciences
