Collection Historical Note

The North Carolina Home Economics Association (NCHEA) was founded in 1917, and achieved formal status in 1919 through the adoption of a constitution and its official name. The association was affiliated with the National Home Economics Association in 1922. The name of the state organization was changed, circa 1994, to the North Carolina Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (NCAFCS) to follow the change in the national organization's name to the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.

The purpose of the NCAFCS is to promote education, research and cooperative programs and to disseminate information in the field of home economics. The association's programs have been concerned with family research, consumer issues, services for children, nutrition, and problems confronting the elderly and the handicapped.

Membership includes professionals working in government agencies, private enterprise and education. Membership is furthermore made up of three separate groupings, six regional groups, six subject matter sections and eight professional sections. The NCAFCS is governed by an elected board of directors.
