Our theme this year is "Legendary Leadership: Kickin' it Old School." I am stoked about this theme. The reasoning behind it is that we're taking this conference back to the way they used to be. We will be having a Parliamentary Procedure contest between all of the groups. We're also going to have a Quiz Bowl contest that students will compete in individually. We're hoping that by having these contests, members will be more excited about FFA. It will definitely be a lot of work for the members. However, we're hoping they will develop pride for the organization through their work. I cannot wait.
Even though SOAR preparations are still underway, FIRE is going to be approaching before we know it! I hope everybody is as excited about our upcoming conferences as we are!
Today, I will be heading up to the Kankakee Valley FFA chapter for their auction tonight. I love seeing how chapter's run their events. I will be giving a speech while I'm there. My speech is based around the memories and experiences I have had in FFA. A majority of my speech consists of the time when I had a Poultry team without Mrs. Markley's 100% approval. Oops. FFA members, remember that the experiences or mistakes you have throughout your FFA career may end up turning into a speech
