Atwater FFA Chapter Officers Attend Local Leadership Conference

The 2016-2017 Atwater FFA chapter officer team joined thirteen other FFA chapters from the Merced-Mariposa section at the FFA Sectional Officer Leadership Conference (SOLC) held at Merced College on Tuesday, September 13th.

The annual Sectional Officer Leadership Conference is held each year to help students develop and strengthen leadership skills and the responsibilities within their offices.  The 2016-2017 Atwater FFA officer team is composed of Callie Norton, President; Emily Junez, Vice President; Ana Lozano, Secretary; Joel Rojas, Treasurer; Audrey Esau, Reporter; Daisy Flores, Sentinel; and Natalie Frontella, Historian.

This year the theme for the Merced Mariposa Sectional FFA is “Embark on Your Purpose.”. Various activities were held at the conference which included understanding body language, proper etiquette, chapter fundraising, public speaking, facilitating a meeting, analytical skills, and finding team strengths. “I learned how to network and be a more effective communicator,” said Natalie Frontella. This conference was the first of two leadership conferences the officer team will be attending this year.  On October 1st and 2nd the officers will be attending the Regional FFA Leadership Conference in Modesto. Nearly 200 chapter officers from the Central Region and the 2016-2017 California FFA Association State Officer Team will be attending the leadership conference. The skills that the students learn will be taken back to the high school and shared throughout the 2016-2017 school year.  

Other FFA chapters that attended the conference included Buhach Colony, Pacheco, Livingston, Merced, Golden Valley, Hilmar, Gustine, Dos Palos, El Capitán, Los Banos, LeGrand, and Mariposa FFA.
