Local FFA Officers Attend Training Conference
The officers of the Mitchell County FFA Chapter were part of the 250 chapter officers representing thirty-seven FFA chapters from across Georgia that attended one of two sessions of the 2014 Chapter Officer Leadership Training Conference (COLT). The two sessions of COLT were held at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near Covington, Blue COLT on July 14-16 and Gold COLT on July 16-18. This year’s COLT theme was “Leading down the Blue & Gold Road.” Chapter officers were challenged to create a set of standards for their team and write down goals for the year. Participants attended workshops that focused on community service, social media, strengths and weaknesses, teamwork, and personal productivity. The students also began planning their chapter’s Program of Activities for the coming year and learned strategies for time management, creativity and communication. Officers were encouraged to make an impact in their school and community and gained ideas for member recruitment, fundraising, and promoting the FFA.
“COLT Conference is an excellent way for chapter officers to kick-off their year of service,” says State FFA President, Callie Warren. “It’s amazing to watch them grow and form friendships that will last a lifetime. We challenge these officers to work together and empower the other members of their chapter.” The officers from the Mitchell County FFA chapter who attended COLT were: Darrius Hicks, Allen Brown, Josey Maynard, Quentez Harris, Jonte’ Harris and David Brown. The Georgia FFA Association is the third largest state association in the nation with more than 37,000 members. The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, changed its name in 1988 to reflect the growth and diversity of agriculture. The mission of the FFA organization is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
