District Leadership Programs

District Conventions take place in early March. FFA members and guests from across the respective districts gather to compete in various events, conduct annual business, and elect the district officers!

Chapter Officer Leadership Training (COLT) occurs in each district during the summer. It is lead by district FFA officers, with the assistance of the state FFA officers. COLT is open to all members who have a desire to lead in their local chapter, regardless of their title--members are not required to be an officer to attend!

Greenhand Fire-Up (GFU) is a leadership program created just for first-year high school FFA members! These conferences occur in each district throughout the fall. It is lead by the district FFA officers with the assistance of state FFA officers.
