Winter Leadership Training

What is Winter Leadership Training?

The Winter Leadership Training consists of two leadership conferences. These two conferences rotate each year. The presenters are either representatives from National FFA or Your Next Speaker and held in Winnemucca or Carson City. One conference focuses on goal setting and opportunities in the FFA. The curriculum is geared toward freshmen and sophomores. The other conference addresses students' personal visions and how they can apply it to help their local chapter and others. This second training is for juniors and seniors. The State Officer Candidate Nomination Committee Pre-Training occurs every year during the Winter Leadership Training.

State Officer Nominating Committee Pre-Training

In addition to the two conferences, we'll be holding the nominating committee pre-training. Each chapter can send one representative to serve on this committee which will begin work in February and then continue their efforts in March to select a slate of state FFA officers to represent Nevada FFA for the upcoming year. Students must attend the pre-training in order to participate in the committee at state convention.
