Capitol Day

Louisiana FFA members are given the opportunity to see state government in action on Capitol Day, a one-

day event each year held at the state capitol in Baton Rouge. The morning begins with FFA members visiting

the State Capitol building and observing Legislative  committees and meeting with their respective state

senators and representatives. A luncheon is held at the Capitol Park Welcome Center, which is within

walking distance of the state capitol. During the luncheon, government officials speak and FFA members have

an opportunity to thank their leaders for their support of FFA and  agricultural education. The day concludes

as FFA is introduced to the Louisiana House of Representatives and Senate during the opening of the regular

session.

 

It is the chapter’s responsibility to invite their senator and representative to the luncheon and

schedule meetings with them. If at all possible schedule meetings between 8:00 – 11:00. You

can find your  Senator and Representative here.

 

Louisiana Agriscience Teachers/FFA Advisors:

We would like to invite you to join us at the annual Louisiana FFA Capitol Day that will be held on April

27th, 2017.  This is a very important activity for the FFA as we continue building relationships with our state

legislators and relay the good news of agriculture education in Louisiana to these individuals. This is also a

wonderful opportunity for you and your members to learn about the legislative process and observe our

lawmakers in action.

Capitol Day is  an excellent time to share information about our programs with our senators and

representatives and to express concerns and issues with them about agricultural education and FFA. Sign-in

will begin at 11:00 AM and the luncheon will begin at 12:00 P.M

R.S.V.P. by April 13th, 2017.
