Student Leadership

Elected annually by delegates from each FFA chapter in California, the State FFA Officer team’s purpose is to inspire and lead their peers, shepherding the FFA component of the program. With the needs of over 97,000 of their fellow members at heart, the team sets intentions and creates programming with the desire to move the association forward and serve the needs of their peers as well as the agriculture industry.

Officers delay college for a year in order to serve their term, basing their operations out of the California FFA Center in Galt.
