Florida FFA is excited to announce the 2017 Chapter Officer Leadership Training (COLT) conference.  This conference is the second phase of our leadership continuum. The COLT conference is designed to meet the needs of your chapter officers (or those that wish to become officers) and provide them with the tools that are necessary for a successful year of service. 

Building on the individual skills learned during Chapter President’s Conference, the COLT experience helps officer teams identify their strengths and weaknesses as a group, and learn advanced interpersonal communication strategies and presentation delivery techniques.  

These six single day conferences will be hosted throughout the state for your convenience.
