New York FFA offers our members leadership training and development throughout their time in FFA. State Leaders Experience (SLE) is the capstone leadership experience for New York FFA members. It provides experiences that help attendees learn how to apply leadership skills to real-life situations. This two-day intensive conference focuses on FFA members engaging directly with their local lawmakers to learn about the legislative process, the issues facing our industry, developing a message and telling their stories.

100 of New York FFA’s best and brightest will be selected to represent our association at the State Capitol during the State Leaders Experience. Students attending this intensive two-day conference will be chosen through a point-based application process that hones in on their involvement and dedication to the advancement of agriculture, agricultural education and FFA.
Twenty additional students (4 students from 5 chapters) will be selected to participate in Concourse Interactive Displays.

New York FFA members participated in the New York State Senate Majority's 2016 Farm Plan press conference, and a Senate Session. Watch the videos below to see these blue jackets in action!
