Federation Fall Workshops

Join Us For Our Fall Federation Workshops!

Photo or J. Earl Rudder Statue The Federation holds several Workshops each fall immediately following the Federation Meeting.  The Workshops cover a variety of topics of interest to Aggie Moms’ Club officers and members including: Leadership, Membership, Scholarships, and Boutique. A complete list of this year’s Workshops appears below.

The Workshops are led by Federation officers or other experienced Aggie Moms.  The leaders share experiences, ideas, and suggestions to help Member Clubs with all their events and projects throughout the club year. Workshop participants are also encouraged to bring ideas from their clubs to share with the group.

Any Aggie Mom may attend any workshop, being a club officer is not required.  Just bring your energy, enthusiasm and love for your Aggie and be prepared to learn a lot and have a great time in the process!

Workshop participants are welcome to bring a snack, beverage and/or sack lunch if they choose, we will be working through lunchtime! Join us for the Fall Federation Meeting and Workshops and have a fabulous day in Aggieland!
