ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Each year Southeast district and Iowa FFA officers plan and facilitate Chapter Officer Leadership Training (COLT) conferences for FFA members in the Southeast district. Lone Tree FFA welcomed FFA chapters from all over the Southeast district on June 1. Lone Tree FFA officers in attendance were: Payton Lorack (vice president), Alberto Cortes (secretary), Kailee Marshek (treasurer), Holley Johnson (reporter), and Heather Geiger (sentinel).

While at Lone Tree on Friday, district and state officers lead four interactive workshops for FFA chapter leaders, many of which are officers, for the annual COLT conference. The workshops facilitated were local FFA chapter program focused in the areas of teamwork and networking, agriculture literacy and knowledge, servant leadership, and professionalism. FFA leaders also received training relative to their specific officer duties within the local chapter.

Iowa FFA president, CD Brinegar, stated, “COLT conference provides a chance for FFA members to learn more about their responsibility as a local leader and is a conference for members to meet and connect with state, district and other chapter officers.”

COLT conference programming is designed as a two-year rotation of local leaders training. The focus areas of next year’s program include advocating for the agriculture industry, connecting with stakeholders, recruiting for the local chapter, and working as a cohesive team. The goal is to engage FFA members in learning about the tools that will allow them to be successful in anything they are part of through high school and beyond.

COLT conference is made possible with support from Energy Transfer Company Dakota Access Pipeline, LLC through the Iowa FFA Foundation.
