Local FFA Members Attend Indiana Leadership Development Conference
February 11, 2009 - Brandi Lightner, Micah Matlock, David Winship, Dillon Silver, Kyle Thomas, and Russell Sparks of the Knightstown FFA Chapter attended the Leadership Development Workshop (LDW) at the Indiana FFA Leadership Center in Trafalgar, Indiana on January 30 through February 1, 2009.
The theme for this conference was Envision; Engage; Empower. While at the conference, FFA members from across the state gathered to learn how to envision the future, so later throughout the year they will be able to empower FFA members once they have them engaged in an interest of theirs’. This conference was geared toward FFA chapter leaders and focused on objectives set by the Indiana FFA.
These objectives included identify and develop relationships of influence; identify personal strengths and weaknesses and how it affects a team; create a team environment that allows for conflict resolution; examine a chapter vision including goals, challenges, and action plans; develop proper techniques to plan and organize events and tasks; demonstrate professional communication techniques that implement change into your organization; and practice professional communication techniques to plan and organize events and tasks.
These objectives, taught by the Indiana FFA State Officer Team, are intended to acclimate students to new and broader horizons with the Indiana FFA Organization. Also included in this conference were themes of patriotism, free and organized recreation time, and an awards banquet for all attending FFA members.
“FFA makes a positive difference in the lives students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.”
For more information, contact the local FFA Advisor or the Indiana FFA State Officer Team.
