2020 State FFA Leadership Conference Cancellation      
The COVID-19 has had an effect on almost every event and every person throughout our country. The California FFA has seen field days and local events cancelled due to the fluidity of this situation. Based on information provided by CDC and the Orange County Health Department, the Anaheim Convention Center has made the difficult decision to cancel all events through April. With this latest development conducting the 2020 California FFA State Leadership Conference has become impossible. It is with the deepest regret that we will be cancelling the State Leadership Conference.
 
At this time we are actively pursuing a virtual, online alternative. A virtual conference would allow the 2019-2020 State Officers to say thank you to their fellow members, conduct the business of the Association, and to install the 2020-2021 State Officers. Additional details regarding a virtual conference will be provided in the coming days.
 
Currently we are also continuing to evaluate the opportunities to conduct State Finals. This includes leadership as well as career development events. At this time we are not prepared to make a recommendation. Like you, we simply do not have the right information to determine when teachers will be able to work with students or if schools will approve travel. We are hopeful that in the coming weeks it will be possible to focus in on a process and confirm locations and dates.
 
We know this is difficult for everyone and we sincerely appreciate you working with us to navigate through these trying times. Through difficulty, true character is revealed. It is because of your character that we are able to work together and create a solution to allow our students to find closure to the year.

2020 State FFA Leadership Conference Refunds      

It is with sincere disappointment that the 2020 State FFA Leadership Conference has been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. California FFA realizes this event is a highlight of the year for FFA members and a culminating experience for many. This decision was made based on the interest of the health and safety of participants and a greater social responsibility following input from the city of Anaheim, the State of California Governor’s Office, the California Department of Education, and the Center for Disease Control. The decision to cancel the 2020 State FFA Leadership Conference was not taken lightly and we understand the disappointment of such decision.

Virtual Conference Plans: 

Currently, the State FFA Officers and the California Department of Education are developing a virtual alternative to deliver the State FFA Leadership Conference and conduct the required business of the organization. Information will be released as plans for this event are finalized.

Conference Registration Refunds/Deferring Funds:

The FFA Adult Board has voted to refund or defer all registration fees for the 2020 State FFA Leadership Conference.

- Refund option: Refunds will be issued directly to the chapter and mailed to the school’s Ag Department. Registration refunds will be issued starting April 15.

o Chapters which paid conference registration via check/PO will have their original payment returned, provided no other fees were included in the payments and the chapter is in good financial standing.

o Chapters which paid conference registration via credit card will be issued a refund for conference specific charges.

- Deferring Funds: Chapters have the option of deferring funds and carrying a monetary credit for the 2020-21 school year for association expenses.

o Any chapter interested in applying 2020 conference registration fees to the 2020-21 school year for association expenses should email Trisha Chapman at tchapman@californiaffa.org prior to April 15.

PLEASE be patient and refrain from calling or emailing regarding refunds until after May 15. The FFA Center Staff is working diligently in processing refunds and returning checks.

Chapter secured hotel/travel reservations:

Chapters, if not already done so, should cancel all lodging reservations and make appropriate requests to cancel travel arrangements as quickly as possible.

Should you have any questions, please reach out to your Regional FFA Advisor, California FFA Center staff, or to me directly.

Sincerely,
Charles Parker, State FFA Advisor
