During the conference members learned about four main growth aspects which include: mental, emotional, physical and social. Members thought about ways to achieve maximum growth realizing that to do this, not “stepping out of your comfort zone” wasn’t an option. Socially our members knew that they needed to grow in ways of communicating. When asked about his experience, Joe H. said “Growing as a speaker and interacting socially is a great way to get our FFA and community members active and excited to work together.” The members were taught to try and solve problems by making the best compromise and respect each person, mentally and emotionally. Finally, members were taught to focus on physical growth. Now as are members return from this conference they say they feel better about themselves and look forward in growing and becoming a better person and leader. Alora B. said “The 212/360 Conference was an eye opening experience. Learning about ways to maximize my potential and start to grow in ways I never thought possible, was awesome. I am so glad I took the opportunity to go to this conference.”
