MEGA 2012 is here!!! As we loaded up the van and picked up two of the National FFA officers, it was time to head to Greensboro, North Carolina where we would meet some pretty awesome FFA members and present FFA workshops! As a team we all ate pizza, fixed our workshop rooms and finished just in time to watch the NCSU basketball game against Kansas. As we watched NCSU lose the game it was time to head on to bed and get excited that over 300 FFA members will soon be in Greensboro to participate in MEGA 2012, and broadcast success! The first general session started out right with opening session and the introduction of all the workshops. Katie and I had the Chapter Presidents Conference, Beverly and Caroline had the Over the Top workshops, John and Alyssa had the spring training workshops and then we had National Staff come in and hold the 212 and 360 workshops. Everyone seemed to have an amazing time!
In the chapter presidents conference they were there to plan and decide the top four issues that would be brought up at the 2012 North Carolina State Convention and to represent over 18,564 FFA members all over North Carolina! Every time the session would open we had them participate in the Minute to Win it games. We learned about parliamentary procedure and made Chex Mix, parliamentary procedure style! In the Over the Top workshop they had an amazing time learning about where FFA can take students after high school. And within the spring training workshops, the students who participated would understand the process of running for State FFA Office! We had an amazing time getting to know the FFA members this week and hope that they can take something back to their chapters and cannot wait to see you at STATE CONVENTION!!!!!!!!!!!
