Officer retreat provides a time for the students to get to know each other and work better as a team. Also during this time, the budget and the yearly calendar is made so the FFA is ready for the upcoming year. On Monday, the team was joined by Andrew Delong, Ag teacher, from the Chief Logan chapter. He performed many team building exercises with the team to help strengthen their relationships with each other. On Tuesday, the team headed to town and had lunch at a nearby cafe and then went go-carting. They also took some time to develop the Program of Activites (POA) for the year. Later that night, the team discussed the goals they had for the chapter and some new ideas to help the chapter grow with their FFA advisors. On Wednesday, the team talked about their favorite parts of the retreat and some things that they had learned. Then it was time to head back home. The team learned a lot of new skills and bonded during this trip and is ready for an exciting new year full of Agriculture Education, Career Development Events (CDEs), Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAEs), community service projects, and FFA! The officer team would like to thank the Paulding FFA Alumni for their support of the officer retreat.
