Convention Presidential Address

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Sent to all contacts

Please see message below from National FFA regarding the presidential address on Saturday:

Good afternoon to all. I hope that your convention week has started out in a great way.


I want to share some high-level information regarding the President of the United States address during the ninth general session at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so that you can share with your teachers.


At this time, we plan to announce during session 1A, 1B and 1C that session 9 will be a ticketed event. Those planning on attending the Saturday session will need to go to Hall K at noon on Thursday in the Indiana Convention Center to request the number of tickets you will need. Please note that the number you ask for cannot exceed the number of individuals you have registered. (Please know that this information is subject to change).


The facility will be set to seat 10,000. The organization will ensure that those who need to be at the session, i.e., backstage crew, Bartha staff, CDE/LDE award winners, past national officers, delegates, band, chorus, nominating committee members, national officer candidates, NFFA/NFDN staff, etc., will have tickets available. We will then distribute 7,000 tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis until they are all distributed. Additional information regarding street closures, doors open time, restricted areas, protest area as well as any other information we have available will be shared when tickets are picked up.


Please be sure to share with your teachers there is no guarantee if they change their travel plans home that they will be able to get in.


If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will answer as best as I can.
