Linn-Mar FFA officers attend district conference
by Nancy Grindle Correspondent · July 13th, 2017

Officers from Linn-Mar's FFA Chapter recently attended the Chapter Officer Leadership Training (COLT) Conference held at Hawkeye Community College near Waterloo.

Chapters from all over the Northeast District participated in the conference on June 7.

While at this annual event, district and state officers led four interactive workshops. The workshops were focused on a number of areas of importance, including the following:

Advocating for the agriculture industry

Connecting with stakeholders

Recruiting for the local chapter

Working as a cohesive team

Officers in local chapters also received training for their specific duties and offices.

Iowa FFA President Zach Hamilton stated, "COLT Conference provides a chance for FFA members to learn more about their responsibilities as a local leader and is a conference for members to meet and connect with state, district and other chapter officers."

COLT Conference programming is set up as a two-year rotation of local leader training. Areas of focus next year will include agriculture literacy, time management, professionalism and self-confidence.

The goal behind these conferences is to engage FFA members so they learn about the tools that will allow them to be successful in anything in which they participate throughout high school and beyond.

Students from Linn-Mar FFA who attended this year's conference included the following:

Chapter President Chase Krug

Chapter Vice-President Savanna Francis

Chapter Secretary Paige Adams

Chapter Treasurer Karen Grother

Chapter Sentinel Jenna Wood

Chapter Reporter Mirannda Schneider-Kettelkamp

Ms. Barb Lemmer, Agricultural Education Teacher and FFA Advisor at Linn-Mar attended the conference with her students.
