Evaluation of the National FFA Nominating Committee Training
Jacklyn Bruce; Kristina Ricketts
Journal of Leadership Education, v6 n1 p59-72 Win 2007
The purpose of this qualitative study was to evaluate if the environment of the National FFA Organization's Nominating Committee training fosters transfer of training to the job they are required to perform, selecting National FFA Officers. Nominating Committee members, advisors, National FFA staff, and National Officer candidates participated in the study. The research methods included semistructured focus group interviews, document analysis, and a short survey. Major findings of the study noted that most areas of the training environment encourage transfer; however, some facets of the environment could be improved to promote training transfer. Recommendations include offering pre-convention training materials in a variety of formats, widening the opportunities for pre-convention meetings to accommodate schedules, continuing to allow Nominating Committee members to set their own cultural norms, and clarifying the roles and responsibilities of the adult consultants with respect to the selection process.
