This capstone event is one in a lifetime experience you will never forget! Each year California FFA hosts its premier leadership development conference where seventy-five of our top graduating senior FFA members are selected annually to step into the role of one of California’s State Legislators. Students are assigned a specific California district and spend four days in Sacramento learning about government, issues in agriculture and ethics, water and natural resources, food and nutrition, and education. At the end of the week, students have the opportunity to conduct mock legislation they have drafted during the conference on the chamber floor of the state senate or assembly.
