Were you Aware?

Washington State has two Family & Consumer Sciences organizations that serve you!

WA-ACTE FACSE is one of WA-ACTE (state organization) largest sections, that is affiliated with ACTE (national organization).  We have a wonderful working relationship with our sister organization, WAFCS who is affiliated with AAFCS (national organization).

Our Annual Conference, held in October every year, is a joint effort from both FCS professional organizations.

We hope that you will consider becoming a member of both organizations.
