(Deadline Today): Chapter Presidents Conference (CPC)

Aug 16, 2019 by Ronnie Simmons

Please note that the registration deadline is today!  Nearly 500 students and teachers are already registered and the conference is filling up quickly, so be sure to register today!

Florida FFA is excited to announce the 2019 Chapter Presidents Conference (CPC)!  This conference is the first phase of the Florida FFA leadership continuum.  The conference will be held at the Daytona Beach Hilton, August 30-31, 2019 (Friday/Saturday).  This event is open to two representatives from each chapter, in addition to District, Sub-District and Federation Officers, and seniors who are potential state officer candidates.  This means that you can have two chapter representatives in addition to any District, Sub-District or Federation officers and potential state officers (seniors) that might also be members of your chapter.  This conference is crucial for the leadership development of your officers at all levels.

Chapter Presidents’ Conference (CPC) is first in a series of training conferences for chapter FFA officers. The conference helps newly elected chapter officers identify their strengths, develop growth plans, and better prepare them to lead your chapter officer team. 

The conference is Friday/Saturday and students will not check into their rooms until after dinner.  This means that students will need to ARRIVE IN OFFICIAL DRESS.

Is there any logistics on what will occur if Tropical Storm Dorian impacts the Daytona Beach area? I would like to convey this information to the parent's of our attendees as soon as possible.
