What is 212° Conference?
The 212° Conference is a leadership conference created by the National FFA Organization and is open to FFA members in 9th or 10th grade. 212 degrees is temperature at which water boils. At 211° water is extremely hot, but just one more degree takes up another level and changes its state. The 212° conference challenges students to push past their limits to the boiling point of leadership.

Every year, the theme rotates and includes the themes virtues and growth. This year we are hosting the “Virtues” themed conference!

What happens during the conference?

200 actively engaged 9th and 10th grade FFA members will experience a fast-paced, action-packed day focusing on:

·         Identifying four segments of personal growth.

·         Determining the role personal habits play in personal growth.

·         Developing a personal growth plan.

·         Differentiating between professional and personal relationships.

·         Understanding social media.

·         Identifying a mentor/coach.

Who facilitates this conference?
The Iowa FFA State Officers along with lead facilitator, Randy Dreher will spend the entire day with you!

Is this new? Have we always been doing 212° Conferences?

Every year the Iowa FFA Association hosts a state level conference for FFA members. It has gone by many different names throughout the years, but in 2010 National FFA created the 212 conference series.

What if I went to 212° Conference last year? Can I go again?

As long as you are in 9th or 10th grade, you can attend the 212 Conference again if there is space. Every year there is a different theme (this year is Virtues) so it will be a different conference than what you attended last year! If you are now in 11th or 12th grade, check out the 360° Conference!

How much does it cost for me to go?
Member Registration Fee (includes lunch and an afternoon snack) is yet to be determined, but will likely be $35-$40. Invoicing to chapters will occur following Experience State Week in January.
