INDIANAPOLIS – The 94th national convention of the FFA, which is scheduled for October 27-30, is expected to be held in person, but also with a virtual aspect.
Mandy Hazlett, associate director of conventions and events for the National FFA Organization, as well as convention and event management, said this year’s convention will be held in person and organizers are once again considering hosting traditional events.
Hazlett said they will host many in-person events including tours, general sessions, American Degree session, showroom and mall.
But the national convention of the FFA will be different. Due to local restrictions, fewer people will be allowed.
They also expect that a number of people will not be able to attend due to restrictions imposed by state or school regulations, which is why the convention will always have a virtual feel, Hazlett said. .
With the success of last year’s convention, which was virtual, the national FFA decided to continue making parts of the convention accessible to others through a virtual platform.
The FFA Blue Room, as well as some student and teacher workshops, will be virtual only this year, Hazlett said.
There will also be a virtual option for National Days of Service, like last year, which will run throughout October with the goal of individuals getting involved in community service projects in their own communities.
“The national FFA officers are so excited and have big smiles from ear to ear,” said Hazlett, adding that the young leaders look forward to welcoming people back to the FFA national convention. .
