Arizona FEA Chapter Officer Leadership Training Camp
Submitted by Dennis Fiscus.
On September 21-22, 2012, FEA High School Chapter Officers and Advisors attended the annual 2012 Chapter Officer Leadership Camp at Pine Summit in Prescott, AZ. This leadership development training focused on Leadership, Communication, Goal Setting, Event Planning, Time Management, Team Building, Program of Activity Planning, Fundraising Strategies, Service Project Strategies and many other personal leadership development activities. Students had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful pines of Prescott, AZ and engage in fun activities both indoors and out. The camp was a great experience for all who attended as AZ FEA members were equipped with resources to enhance the effectiveness of their chapter.
Members of AZ FEA were encouraged to attend and recruit others for future AZ FEA events scheduled to take place for the year to come. AZ FEA Fall Conferences are scheduled to occur at NAU on October 30; U of A on November 5 and ASU on November 14, 2012. These conferences focus on the successful transition to college and include sessions on “Success Strategies for College, Campus Tours, College Student Panels, College Smorgasbord, Competition Readiness and the ever so popular “FEA Olympics.” On March 7-8 2013, AZ FEA will host their State Conference and Competitions at Grand Canyon University. At this competitive event, the top student competitors will have the opportunity to progress to the AZ FEA National Competition scheduled to take place in Orlando, FL in April 2013 and compete against other top FEA student competitors nationwide.
