Wilson FFA Chapter Attends State Conference for Chapter Leaders

Wilson FFA at Leader ConferenceExplorers have searched the world for generations in search of the lost city of Atlantis. Working to come together to find "Aglantis" and to lead their FFA chapter into discovery of what is possible through the FFA was the mission of the members of the Wilson FFA Chapter at the 2018 State Conference for Chapter Leaders (SCCL) held July 1 to July 3 at Rock Springs Ranch south of Junction City.

Members of the Wilson FFA Chapter joined over 200 Kansas FFA members on a journey to further develop their ability to lead their local FFA chapter and develop their chapter vision and goals.

Throughout the conference, the six state FFA officers related the theme of deep sea exploration to being a chapter leader and "Diving Deep Into Leadership".

SCCL gives chapter FFA leaders the chance to make many discoveries for their upcoming year of service.

Key points the members learned and experienced during the conference included purpose and growth, being an officer, challenging the status quo, creating a shared vision and pulling it all together. Through workshops facilitated by both the state FFA officers and a select group of agricultural education instructors, the students experienced the importance of these points first hand.

Members also packaged 30,000 meals to be distributed across the state of Kansas.

"This year's conference focus is teamwork - how improving ourselves as both leaders and team members will lead to more effective FFA chapters. We have a really fun deep-sea theme, titled "Journey to Aglantis," State FFA President Max Harman said. "The conference concluded with participants having created concrete goals and strategies to help them build leaders, teams and successful chapters this year!"

The State Conference for Chapter Leaders is presented by the Kansas FFA State Officer Team, the Kansas FFA Association, and sponsored in part by Cargill.

The Kansas FFA Association, part of the National FFA Organization, has over 9,000 student members preparing for careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture in 194 local chapters across the state. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
