Career & Leadership Development Events      
FFA members focus on skill development and career preparation through participation in competitive career and leadership development events that develop individual responsibility, foster teamwork and promote communication while recognizing the value of ethical competition and individual achievement.

STAR Conference      

State Leadership Crew      
FFA members from every chapter are invited to gather together to formulate our State Leadership CREW (Chapter Representatives Engagement Webinars). 
Are you a chapter officer? Are you likely to be a delegate at the state convention? You should attend CREW meetings!

Elite Conference      

The need for agriculture teachers in the state of Illinois and nationwide are very high. This workshop is a great opportunity to meet other students with similar interests, talk with college and university representatives and get any questions answered about the possibilities teaching agriculture education has to offer.  This year's Elite Conference details will be released shortly!

National FFA Convention      
Every year, FFA members nationwide converge on the National FFA Convention & Expo to celebrate their accomplishments and find inspiration for their next steps. Motivational keynote speakers, energetic concerts, fulfilling workshops and a sweeping expo floor bustling with agricultural education and industry opportunities will have you snapping pics and grabbing videos of all of the experiences you’ll remember forever.

BUILD Conference      
The BUILD Conference is an excellent opportunity for students to develop personal and leadership skills that will lead them to success.

National FFA Week      
Each year, FFA Chapters around the country celebrate National FFA Week, and this week-long tradition began in 1947 in conjunction with George Washington’s birthday. George Washington is recognized due to his legacy as an agriculturalist and farmer.

Washington Leadership Conference      
The National FFA Organization aims to provide exceptional leadership training to students of all experience levels through utilization of a three-part, cohesive conference series called the Chapter Leadership Continuum. The final conference in this series is the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC).  Please watch for a listserv with more information about this wonderful trip.
