In February 2019, 26 members participated in various leadership career development events at Western Dubuque High School in Anamosa, Iowa. Sub-District contest is the first leg of preliminary stages for State qualifying. East Buchanan was represented very well and won the overall contest.

District Leadership Conference
In March 2018, members from East Buchanan FFA attended and participated in numerous leadership activities at Waukon High School. District Leadership Conference is a place where FFA members compete against one another for the right to compete at the Iowa State Leadership Conference, discuss district matters, say goodbye and welcome the newly elected District Officer Team. Three members were recognized for outstanding academic achievement and the chapter was named a superior national chapter. Overall, East Buchanan was represented very well on this day.
Chapter Officer Leadership Training (C.O.L.T.)
At C.O.L.T. newly elected officers are able to gain more knowledge about their respective positions. Officers work with other officers from other schools to gain some insight on how they run their chapter and learn from each other. District and State Officers provide workshops to help them gain their knowledge on how they can better serve their local chapter.
In October 2018, members participated in the annual Greenhand Fire-Up held every year at Wapsie Valley High School. At the Fire-Up, first year members participate in various workshops relating to FFA and gaining more knowledge about this great organization. This is often the first time Greenhand members are able to participate in something above the local chapter level.
