Virginia Tech Fall

Leadership Conference



The Fall Leadership Conference at Virginia Tech will be held Thursday October 6, 2016 on the Virginia Tech Campus in Blacksburg. The conference will be ideal and most engaging for beginning FFA members in grades 6-9. The conference learning activities will focus on providing students opportunities to deepen their self-understanding and further develop their leadership skills. 


The conference will be capped at 400 students to ensure we have an adequate amount of space and high quality learning environments.  Please complete the registration form found below and return it by Friday September 24th so that we can finalize our plans for the day of the conference.
