Regional Development Conferences

The National FFA Alumni Association is bringing professional, personal and FFA alumni development to the masses. Knowing that not everyone can attend our annual national events, we’re hitting the road to host regional development days. These events are meant to engage individual members, local FFA alumni leaders, state FFA alumni leaders, agricultural educators and others involved with agricultural education. The best part is these conferences are FREE.

The event format allows for networking and socializing with fellow FFA alumni, idea sharing and collecting feedback to address obstacles, learning and training in areas of advocacy, leadership, affiliate business operations and more.
