Do you want to be a better leader in your community?
The Minnesota FFA Alumni Association has created a systematic, sustainable leadership enhancement program for FFA Alumni in Minnesota. This new leadership program involves enhancing and building alumni member leadership skills which, in turn, will sustain and improve agriculture education in Minnesota.
During the past twelve months, 20 individuals participated in the President's Cirlce leadership training program. Core training inclued a strong focus on teamwork, conflict resolution, mentor leadership, and strategic planning.
The program was designed for individuals looking to enhance their current leadership skills and make a postive difference for Minnesota agriculture.
Please contact Fred Troendle, President's Circle Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more informatoin and/or to indicate your desire to participate.
