Each fall, FFA members from all over Iowa travel to the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny to attend the 212º Conference! The 212º Conference is a leadership conference created by National FFA and is open to FFA members in 9th or 10th grade. At 211º water is extremely hot, but just one more degree takes it up another level!

The 212º Conference focuses on student development and is presented by the Iowa FFA Officers and lead facilitator Randy Dreher. Every year, the conference rotates between two themes: Growth and Virtues. This year we are hosting the "Growth" themed conference! Please see below for more information about the theme of this year's conference.

The 2017 212 Conferences are scheduled for Saturday, November 11th and Saturday, January 6th. Cost for the conference will be $40-$45 per student and is handled on a first come, first served basis. Registration closes on Thursday, November 2nd and Friday, December 15th respectively. Talk to your advisor today about attending! Registration is limited to 12 members per chapter and 200 members per conference.

This event is made possible with support from the Iowa FFA Foundation.
