NORTH FORSYTH — Six North Forsyth High School students were among the 250 officers representing thirty-seven FFA chapters from across Georgia who attended the 2014 Chapter Officer Leadership Training Conference.

Held in two sessions last month at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near Covington, the theme was “Leading down the Blue & Gold Road.”

Chapter officers were challenged to create a set of standards for their team and write down goals for the year.

Participants attended workshops that focused on community service, social media, strengths and weaknesses, teamwork and personal productivity.

The students also began planning their chapter’s program of activities for the coming year and learned strategies for time management, creativity and communication. 

Officers were encouraged to make an impact in their school and community and gained ideas for recruiting members, fundraising and promotions.  

The Georgia FFA is the third largest state association in the nation, with more than 37,000 members. The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, changed its name in 1988 to reflect the growth and diversity of agriculture.
