The Fowler FFA Chapter attended the MFE ALD Conference at the Hotel Elegante in Colorado Springs.

This conference is hosted by the Colorado State FFA Officer Team, and attendees heard guest speakers Kelly Barnes and Dustin Gaylon.
Body type J: The conference started on Saturday at noon and was in session until six. After dinner, the chapter returned to do a reflection activity with the officers, followed by a dance. The next morning they returned to another three hours of session.

In these sessions, they were split into the MFE portion and the ALD portion. MFE is attended by under classmen, and stands for “Made for Excellence.” ALD is Advanced Leadership Development, where upperclassmen and officers go. They discussed ways to become a better leader. “Doing good for goodness’s sake” along with “The best thing you can do for someone is to make them feel as lucky as you are” were the main points of the conference.

While there, they met FFA chapter members from Nebraska and Oklahoma. The chapter returned home on Sunday afternoon.
