Tropical Storm Dorian vs. Chapter Presidents' Conference (CPC)

Aug 27, 2019 by Ronnie Simmons

Florida FFA continues to monitor the weather forecast for the east coast of Florida as Tropical Storm Dorian moves north through the Atlantic.  Understandably, school officials are also monitoring the situation closely and are asking questions about our plan for the Chapter Presidents’ Conference (CPC). 

At this point, we plan to proceed as planned with the conference, with minor adjustments to the schedule to allow chapters to get on the road earlier on Saturday.  See revised schedule below.  

Our decision (at this point) is based on information provided to us by the National Hurricane Center and our conversations with Hilton Daytona officials.  Based on the latest advisory issued by the NHC this morning at 8:00 AM, Tropical Storm Dorian is forecasted to be centered over the Bahamas Saturday morning.  Even though the storm will be well off the coast throughout the duration of our conference, we understand that the chance of wind and rain increases considerably as the storm approaches.
