Kanza Cooperative Association recently partnered with the Kansas FFA Foundation to provide training for the Kansas FFA Association Officers. The one-day program provided the six current state officers and Kansas’s candidate for national office with skills needed for interacting with business and industry professionals.
The training focused on business dinning etiquette, relationship building, key message development and meeting leadership for interacting in business settings. The event culminated with a real-world practice session where business professionals met with the officers and provided coaching on areas for improvement.
Kanza partnered with local businesses and individuals in Pratt to host the program including BTI and Stanion Electric, who each hosted a portion of the event.
Supporting organizations like the Kansas FFA Association and Foundation is one of the ways that Kanza is investing in our communities and the next generation of agricultural leaders.
