Morgan Vondra and Katie Fitzsimmons of the Mineral Point FFA Chapter attended the Wisconsin Association of FFA Half-Time Leadership Conference held at the Holiday Inn & Convention Center in Stevens Point January 12-13.
Over 350 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 32 year tradition for the Wisconsin Association of FFA to bring top FFA leaders from across the state together to learn more about what they can do in their local FFA chapters. This year’s leadership conference was designed and conducted by the 2017-18 Wisconsin State FFA Officers. The theme of the conference was “Setting the Stage.”
FFA advisors were also busy during the weekend as they attended training sessions in the areas of youth livestock opportunities, reenergizing for the second half of the school year, FFA updates and other key topics in agricultural education. Teachers were also involved in the Wisconsin Association of Agricultural Educators Board Meetings and Committee Meetings.
