    MPower: A Guide to FFA Chapter Leadership

    Overview

    This is a resource guide for the FFA chapter advisor that wants to help their officers grow in their leadership ability, make their FFA chapter student led and student run, have a competent, capable chapter officer team every year, and be the Advisor of the chapter and not the person responsible for every aspect of the chapter's operation.  Mpower is made possible through the generous support of  Bayer CropScience as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

    MPower: A Guide to FFA Chapter Leadership

    This is a resource guide for the FFA chapter advisor that wants to help their officers grow in their leadership ability, make their FFA chapter student led and student run, have a competent, capable chapter officer team every year, and be the Advisor of the chapter and not the person responsible for every aspect of the chapter's operation.

    From the document's preface:

    Mpower is a collection of tools designed to empower the members in your FFA Chapter to run the chapter and develop their leadership skills in the process. The power of any FFA Chapter lies in the hearts of the Members. Their passion and pride, their desire to learn and their willingness to work to achieve their goals, create the magic that makes the FFA a respected leadership organization.

    Contained in this guide are the resources necessary to

    • manage the election process
    • help the chapter officers understand their roles and fulfill their responsi- bilities
    • conduct retreats and leadership development activities for chapter officers
    • have effective executive committee meetings
    • provide training in special areas for officer development and growth
    • solve common problems or situations related to chapter officers

    Mpower was developed to provide a “one-stop” guide to help your chapter offi- cers be the best they can be – and grow the next generation of leadership for your chapter. It should be used in conjunction with other resources from your state and national FFA organization and materials you have developed for your chapter.
