Maria Deddens was one of ten 2021-2022 National Executive Council Members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) at the conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

In serving as a National Officer, youth leaders can further improve leadership skills, increase personal growth and awareness, meet new people, travel, serve as a spokesperson for FCCLA, and help FCCLA reach its goals.
