92nd Illinois State FFA Convention going virtual
The Illinois FFA Board has announced the 92nd Illinois State FFA Convention will be held virtually due to health risks from COVID-19.
In an email update, Executive Director Mindy Bunselmeyer says the business session and officer elections will be conducted virtually as well the recognition of the Stars Over Illinois during the scheduled convention dates of June 9-11. She says the board feels that keeping those events on the scheduled dates is imperative to the timeliness of selecting new officers and recognizing the stars.
Retiring officer addresses, proficiency award winners and all other chapter and individual award recognition will take place during designated virtual convention dates between July 13-23. Bunselmeyer says pushing the remainder of the events to July allows FFA officers and staff time to convert them to a virtual format.
More information will be shared as it becomes available in the coming weeks.
