Information Updated 11/20/2023

Each year, FFA members from all over the United States travel to Washington, DC to attend the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC). During the five-day event, attendees learn how to become effective leaders by teaching them to know their purpose, value people, take action, and serve others. Students from Iowa have the opportunity to choose from two different options to experience this week-long event in June. For more information, see the Washington Leadership Conference website at the National FFA Organization.
