Morgan Fitzsimmons and Tommie Loken of the Mineral Point High School FFA Chapter attended the Wisconsin Association of FFA Half-Time Leadership Conference held at the Holiday Inn & Convention Center in Stevens Point January 13-14. Over 450 FFA members, advisors, and state FFA officers participated.

The Half-Time Leadership Conference provides FFA chapter leaders from around the state the opportunity to set goals and prepare for the second half of their year of service in their local FFA chapters. FFA members attended workshops focused on leadership and personal development, membership and chapter development, and opportunities in FFA. They learned about preparing for FFA events and getting involved in community service.

The Half-Time Conference is a 31 year tradition to bring top FFA leaders from across the state together to learn more about what they can do in their local FFA chapters. The theme of the conference was β€œIn the Locker Room.” FFA advisors were also busy during the weekend as they attended training sessions in the areas of Meat Animal Quality Assurance, Academic Career Planning, Award Applications and other key topics in agricultural education.
