Louisville!  We hope to see you at the 86th National FFA Convention & Expo!

By Kylah Reynolds, engagement and stewardship intern, National FFA Foundation

As you look ahead, it will feel like you are in a moving portrait. A sea of blue corduroy fluidly surrounds you along the sidewalk. One student in particular catches your eye. Linking arms with their fellow members, they walk to the same beat. Laughter radiates from them as they talk about their day. You briefly close your eyes as the memories come back. Memories of when you were that student who couldn’t wait to experience everything the National FFA Convention & Expo had to offer. It brings a smile to your face and right then you realize something. Your support for this program is allowing these students to experience the same joys and excitement that you did when you were a member.

Convention and expo 2013:
Get familiar with Louisville. Watch now! 
Feel comfortable in the city with these safety tips
What to expect at the convention and expo.

Come experience these same feelings again at the 86th National FFA Convention & Expo in Louisville, Ky! This year we are celebrating 80 years of the blue jacket, and we would love for you to have an experience that is both personal and positive.

Mark your calendars. The sponsor and donor dinner will be held on Thursday, Oct. 31 from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for individuals and companies to come together and celebrate the impact supporting the organization has had both locally and nationally. Following the dinner, from 7 - 9 p.m. at the third general session, sponsors and donors will be recognized on the main stage. These supporters of FFA will be recognized in front of the 16,000+ members, advisors, parents and visitors that will be in attendance. From 9:30 - 11:30 p.m., an after-hours social will continue the great conversations.

If you can’t make it to this year’s convention and expo, you can still remember those good times by tuning into our live streaming coverage online at www.iHigh.com/FFA. The event will also be broadcast on RFD-TV, located on Dish Network channel 231 and Direct TV channel 379.  Or visit www.rfdtv.com for other listings.  You can also find the latest news, information and excitement all week on www.FFA.org, Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for your continued support. Without thoughtful visionaries like you, we would not be able to continually impact students’ lives.
