Over 5,000 Iowa FFA members will gather for the 88th Iowa FFA Leadership Conference early next week.
The conference will take place in Ames Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Iowa FFA President Michael Tupper says it’s exciting.
“The state officer team is ready to go and we’re really thrilled to be able to host over 5,000 FFA members in Ames this upcoming week in Ames.”
Tupper says members will participate in contests, leadership development workshops, general sessions.
He says the whole year as president has been a thrill.
“I’ve enjoyed my time helping direct the work of this organization that does so much for the lives of students. For me, chapter visits were always a blast and I really enjoyed national convention. I was able to serve as a delegate chair, one of six in the country at national convention this year which was a really enjoyable experience.”
Tupper says beyond that just being able to meet with students and understand the impact FFA members have.
His advice for this upcoming Iowa FFA president: “Enjoy every moment.”
