Last chance to register is TODAY! 

There are so many opportunities for us as agriculture teachers to grow and learn to stay on the cutting edge of agriculture (an industry that is growing faster than we can dream!). The GA Organics Conference is one of those opportunities. This conference is a two day event in Atlanta,GA (see address below) on February 17th and 18th. Yes, this is one of the craziest months but hey what a great activity to lead your chapter into National FFA Week! You do not have to attend both days but there are tons of educational workshops and industry contacts attending various sessions and workshops both days of the conference. (This would also be a great opportunity for those seeking to become Industry Certified in the Horticulture Area or for those needing to renew.)
