The Wisconsin FFA Sectional Leadership Workshop, held, Monday, Sept. 10, is designed to prepare local FFA chapter officers and members for leadership roles in their school district for the upcoming year. The theme of the workshop was “Mission I’M Possible”.
The workshop also informs each chapter of the new programs available to all FFA members and allows the officers to exchange ideas with other FFA chapters in their area.
The 2012-2013 State FFA Officer Team planned and conducted this conference to encourage the participants to develop their leadership potential, to challenge them to set personal and chapter goals for the year and to motivate the students to take advantage of the many opportunities available to them through the FFA.
FFA advisor Sandy Piechowski Cordes participated in a workshop that helped inform advisors about FFA opportunities for the school year.
“This workshop is a great way to prepare FFA members for their role as an active member in their local chapter as well as those that serve as chapter officers,” said Cheryl Zimmerman, Wisconsin FFA Executive Director. “These sessions get students excited about leadership and all the opportunities that they can participate in through the FFA organization. It helps them discover their potential in their local FFA chapters and how they can put their leadership into action.”
This year, Ryan Best, National FFA president from Portales, N.M., conducted a workshop to get FFA members motivated for the coming year and challenged them to get involved in the many opportunities FFA has to offer.
There are ten Sectional Leadership Workshops held throughout Wisconsin.
