Conference BUILDS Leadership

Posted: December 14, 2018

“Being United in Leadership Development” (BUILD) was the theme for the new statewide FFA Conference which took place in November. Illinois Association FFA teamed up with Illinois Farm Bureau to develop the event, which was a merger of the former Illinois Farm Bureau and Affiliates Youth Conference and the FFA 360 Conference, both of which have taken place in past years.

Twenty-three members from four area FFA chapters participated in the newly-designed conference. During the two-day event, students attended sessions focused on building leadership, relationship, and teambuilding skills. DeKalb, Genoa-Kingston, Somonauk-Leland-Sandwich, and Sycamore FFA chapters each sent students to the conference.
