Teachers, The spring semester is officially underway, and the 2007 Leadership Conferences are near. Below you will find information regarding each of the conferences. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Discovery Conference & Greenhand Jamboree The Discovery Conference and the Greenhand Jamboree are great opportunities for young members to discover what the FFA has to offer. These conferences will be held on March 2-3, 2007 in conjunction with the Success Conference, at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near Covington. Students should plan to wear casual dress for the entire conference. The conference fee is $40 per person. That fee includes meals, lodging, conference t-shirt, and conference materials. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities. The Discovery Conference is open to students in grades 6-8, and the Greenhand Jamboree is for ninth grade students. In order to offer quality conferences, these conferences are limited to a combined total of 250 students. Success Conference The Success Conference is an opportunity for 10-12th grade FFA members. It will be held in conjunction with the Discovery Conference and the Greenhand Jamboree on March 2-3, 2007. The objective of this conference will be to focus on personal development, character, decision-making, and goal setting. The program will be conducted by three of the state FFA officers, and is sure to be a positive experience for older FFA members. The registration cost for the Success Conference is $40 per person. That fee includes meals, lodging, a conference t-shirt and conference materials. Students attending the Success Conference will need to bring Official FFA Dress as well as casual dress for the weekend. NOTE: Official dress will be worn during the entire Success Conference with the exception of the dance/recreation time Friday night. To ensure a quality conference, there will be a 200 student limit. Every person attending the conferences must be pre-registered. All pre-registration material, including a $10 per person non-refundable deposit, is due to the FFA Office postmarked by February 13, 2007. Registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Any pre-registration material postmarked after February 13 will be charged a $10 per person late fee, or may not be accepted. No pre-registration will be accepted by email, fax, or over the telephone. Registration for the conferences will begin on Friday, March 2, at 4:30 p.m. Supper will be served at 6:00 p.m. and the first session will start at 6:45 p.m. Both conferences will conclude by noon on Saturday, March 11.
