E. Ridenour, (5) "The New FFA--Relevant, Flexible and Designed to Serve All Students and All Instructional Programs" by J. L. Branch, (6) "Build a Better Berrien" by Jerry Baldree, (7) "Building a Better Rural America" by James V. Smith, and (8) "Rural Development" by John Kyl. In addition to daily reports and panel discussions, these proceedings include several workshop reports on implementing the new FFA and on performance objectives for student development. (JS)
