Once a leader is comfortable with their own self and self-purpose, they can discover how to work with others and establish common goals. Student discovery of how to work as a team of innovative leaders in their chapter while analyzing program needs and creating a plan of action to create change, is the focus of this conference. This conference is about "WE: how leaders build relationships with others to establish common vision."

Juniors: Envision a new FFA!      
What could your FFA chapter accomplish if it had the tools and strategies to be truly powerful? Get ready for ALA: "A New Vision". ALA will help students and chapter officers hone in on the purpose and vision of the National FFA Organization as students gain clarity on the fifteen areas of the program of activities in the three divisions of growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. During this conference chapter members will learn the steps to developing action plans for a chapter project and showcase their idea to other chapters at ALA. Members will leave with dozens of new ideas to enhance their chapter and lead FFA towards "A New Vision"!


This conference is sponsored as a special project of the California FFA Foundation.
