Alumni Development Conference



The National FFA Organization is bringing professional, personal, FFA Alumni and Supporter leadership development to members throughout the nation. Knowing that not everyone can attend annual national events, National FFA Alumni and Supporter staff are traveling the nation to host Regional Development Conferences. These events are meant to engage individual members, local Alumni leaders, state Alumni leaders, agricultural educators and others involved with agricultural education.  Wisconsin will be hosting one of these conferences in Madison on September 21- 22, 2018. The conference is free and open to any interested members.


The conference format allows for networking and socializing with fellow FFA Alumni and Supporters, idea sharing and collecting feedback to address obstacles, learning and training in areas of advocacy, leadership, chapter business operations and more. The schedule is as follows:
