Local FFA chapter officers are challenged to Lead Up
October 7, 2021
Officers of the Freedom, Alva and Burlington FFA chapters participated in the 2021 Oklahoma FFA Chapter Officer Leadership Training Conference on Sept. 28 at the Enid Event Center in Enid.
The eight state officers from each chapter planned and conducted this year's conference based on the theme "Lead Up." Elected officers from each of the 62 high school FFA chapters in the northwest area attended the conference, which equipped each student with leadership tools that focused on specific officer duties and leading when one is unsure what to do.
Rhett Laubach, Edmond, was the keynote speaker for the conference. He is an accomplished professional speaker, leadership coach and served as state FFA president in 1992-1993.
"Oklahoma FFA is such an incredible organization because of the natural leadership that is found in our membership," said Dalton Rogers, state FFA president. "As an association we want to make sure that those officers elected to serve on the local level are prepared to 'Lead Up' within their chapters, expressing to the best of their abilities the leadership that our association is best know for."
