Idaho FFA Association

As we celebrated the 238th anniversary of this great country with fireworks, BBQs, and family, hopefully we also remembered what it takes to give you the freedom to enjoy the long weekend. 56 lawyers, jurists, merchants, farmers and plantation owners risked everything in order to stand up and declare what they believed so passionately about.
While members have been working hard on SAE projects and enjoying time off from school, our advisors have been working hard at Summer Conference. They met in prospective committees to make improvements and implement changes. Thanks to them, the 2014-2015 year in FFA will be great.
The State Officers have also been preparing for a year of service at the National Leadership Conference for State Officers (NLCSO) in Boise. Washington, Oregon and Alaska State Officers joined us at Expo Idaho for an educational and fun packed week of training. We learned facilitation, workshop, reflection, and flag ceremony tips along with teamwork and networking skills.
As we look forward to triple digits temperatures, the Idaho FFA State Officer Team is increasingly excited for upcoming events and opportunities to mingle with members. District Officer Training (DOT) is an event hosted by the state officers and it happened in Stanley, Idaho July 7-9. It was an excellent opportunity for all district officers and advisors.
Tis’ the season! Fair season that is. All over the Gem State, County fairs will begin to appear with buckles up for grabs and good times to be had. Be sure to practice showmanship and stay hydrated and do your best.
Joint Student Leadership (JSL) is hosted by the Professional Technical Education department. BPA, DECA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA, SkillsUSA, and TSA will all send representatives to the Boise conference August 4-7 to learn and grow. Idaho FFA’s state officers and district presidents will proudly represent the blue corduroy jacket and learn from the other organizations.
Have a wonderful summer Idaho FFA! Remember: Enjoy Summer, Stay Blue, and Rise Above!
Sincerely,
