SAE Renewal Update
Coming Soon! We are nearing the release date of the resources for delivery of the new SAE program. SAE Renewal, which started in 2008, is now ready for implementation into ag ed classrooms across the country.  Watch for the official announcement of the SAE for All guides in the next couple of weeks. This tool, along with the teacher version of the guide, coming later in August, will walk students through the What, Why and How of the SAE program. The two resources will enable teachers to introduce SAE to their students this fall and start them on their SAE journey using the SAE structure and components developed by the National Council for Agricultural Education. Additional resources are also under development to provide teachers the tools they can use to develop SAE's for all students enrolled in our programs. These will be released later this fall through the council website and announced here on Monday Morning Monitor.

2017-18 212?/360? Conference Host Registration Reminder
With August approaching, we’d like to remind you about the registration process for the 2017-18 212? and 360? conference seasons. Please make sure to read our new Conference Planning Guide. This will help ensure an easy registration and conference experience. The deadline for 2017-18 conference registration is Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017.
We have changed several items related to hosting a 212? and/or 360? conference. Our aim is to improve efficiencies in shipping and invoicing and to bring more clarity to the hosting process. These changes may result in some increased costs for hosts; however, these changes make processes more straightforward and timely.  Below are highlights of major changes or areas of greater clarification for the upcoming conference year:
  • Conference hosts must provide projectors. Facilitators having to travel with the projectors has been an issue in the past and has resulted in broken projectors. To help mitigate this issue in the future, we are asking the conference hosts to provide this item. 
  • Final participant numbers are due three weeks prior to the conference. If numbers are submitted less than three weeks prior to a conference, there may be additional costs incurred to expedite shipping and add additional facilitators to your conference location. See page 6 of the conference guide for a detailed explanation.
  • Invoicing will be based on the final participant numbers submitted three weeks prior to the conference. This ensures conference material inventory is more accurate, dissolves the need for shipping as many items back and forth, and also provides for a more timely invoice.
  • State sponsorship will be deducted from invoices (when applicable); however, National FFA staff (facilitators) lodging and conference-provided meals will no longer be deducted from conference invoices. It will now be the responsibility of the host to cover these costs. This will allow us to align this process with other National FFA conference guidelines to create consistency within our leadership development programs.

National Officer Nominating Committee: Important Update
Last week, during IT testing on the National FFA database server, we inadvertently deleted the database that housed the National Officer Selection Process. Once the issue was discovered, the database structure was recreated, but we were unable to recover the national officer candidate and nominating committee potential data. This means all nominations, applications, essays, attachments, and other application components were lost and will need to be resubmitted.
If you designated a nominating committee potential, you will need to resubmit their information by filling out the Nominating Committee Nomination Form.  We have extended the deadline and will accept all nominations for committee until July 28 at 5 p.m. EST. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes you. If you have any questions, please email nomcom@ffa.org. Multiple staff are monitoring this mailbox; we will respond to your email within 24 hours.
