FFA Members Attend Leadership Conference
By Branyon Bliss, El Capitan FFA Chapter Reporter


On September 13th, the El Capitan FFA Chapter Officer team attended the Merced-Mariposa Section Chapter Officer Leadership Conference. COLC, is a leadership conference where chapter officers have the opportunity to bond with chapter officers from other schools in the Merced-Mariposa Section, and learn leadership tactics to bring back to their own chapter. This year, COLC was facilitated by the Merced-Mariposa Sectional Officer team, along with the Merced College Ag Ambassadors. The conference was held at Merced College, and had over 75 FFA members in attendance. 

 

The conference started by splitting up students based on their FFA officer position. “We attended a workshop that allowed us to collaborate with others who hold the same title,” said Chapter Vice President, Adrian Miao, “it was great to learn how I can be the best in the role I was given on my officer team.” The next workshops discussed tactics to better improve themselves as chapter officers, as well as ways to better their chapter. Overall, the evening included lots of team building activities and icebreakers that helped to build new friendships and leadership skills. 

 

The event was also facilitated by El Capitan FFA’s own, Anika Niles, who is serving as the Merced Mariposa Sectional President. Anika and her sectional officer team spent countless house planning for the event. “COLC was a great success for all chapter officers, and something that they will definitely remember. We look forward to bringing more students in the future,” said El Capitan FFA Advisor, Michaela Pignone. The sectional officer team should be proud of the event they created for FFA members from throughout the area.
