Student Advisory Council
The Student Advisory Council (SAC) is a forum for direct communication and recommendation between students and the NCFCA leadership. As members of the Council, students will share their voices on a variety of topics and work to create evidence-based solutions for select issues that are important to students and their regions. They will also serve as ambassadors for NCFCA, engaging their community, and working to further the mission of the organization. The purpose of the Student Advisory Council is to promote the development and growth of NCFCA, provide a connection between National leadership and our students, and to provide a venue for representation of and response to student concerns.
Serving on the Student Advisory Council provides students with many opportunities to represent the voices of other students, develop leadership skills, network, and gain valuable, résumé-building experiences. Council members gain mentors and learn how to mentor others. Through these experiences, they also gain invaluable insight into the importance of godly leadership.
