The State FFA Delegate Experience ensures that the California Association of FFA remains a grassroots organization that serves students at the local level.
Held in conjunction with the annual State FFA Leadership Conference, the experience brings together over 600 student leaders from across the state. The delegation comprises two voting delegates from each chartered FFA chapter (338 chapters) along with 13 State FFA Executive Committee members. Students convene to share ideas and perspectives that will ensure the continued progress of the Association.
