Each year, FFA members from all over the United States travel to Washington, D.C., to attend the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC).
During the five-day event, attendees learn how to become effective leaders by learning their purpose, how to value people, how to take action and how to serve others.
FFA members leave WLC with the knowledge and the confidence to act in ways that help their schools, community and their country.

FFA Members: Are you ready?
This is no ordinary leadership experience. You will spend a week putting these skills into practice as you make new friends from across the United States and tour our nation's capital. This action-packed week will help you gain self-confidence and leadership skills to take back to your FFA chapter and share with other members.
WLC Civic Engagement Activity
The capstone event of WLC is the civic engagement activity, where participants apply what they have learned at the conference to a real, hands-on service activity.
FFA Advisors: WLC Is For You, Too
WLC isn't just for students. It’s an adventure for advisors, too. The WLC advisor program will motivate, excite and energize you. It's an incredible opportunity to interact and share valuable ideas with other FFA advisors from across the United States.
The advisor program includes meals at the hotel. However, if you would like to explore options around the hotel click

WLC is sponsored by Monsanto, CSX, TransCanada, Crop Production Services and Farm Credit as a special project of the
National FFA Foundation.
