May 2-4, 2019 State Convention - Syracuse, NY

We are looking forward to 2019 when over 1,500 FFA members, advisors and honored guests from across the state gather for this annual event to hear inspiring presentations from peers and agricultural professionals, expand their knowledge during workshops and tours by exploring different fields in the agricultural industry, and networking with agricultural business professionals and colleges during the Career Engagement Expo.

State Convention is the state finals for 31 of our Career and Leadership Development Events (CDEs and LDEs), which allow students to test their knowledge and skills against others at the same competitive level. Students can take part in any number of these events or watch, learn, and observe as others compete by demonstrating their talents, aptitudes and abilities. Many of the CDE/LDE's serve as qualifiers to the National FFA Convention.

This event also gives us the opportunity to recognize our members, advisors and avid supporters in one of six sessions throughout this three-day convention. This culminating event, allows everyone to appreciate the hard work and dedication that our members, advisors and supporters invest in the future leaders of our communities.
