Serving as a State FFA Officer

Serving as an officer in the FFA is a great honor. Having the chance to serve as a state officer comes with many opportunities to influence, impact and serve FFA members, advisors, teachers and supporters of the organization. These opportunities to lead and impact are invaluable and represent what the service to FFA is all about. Below is a list of the opportunities that state officers participate in during their year of service.

State Officer Leadership Continuum – This is a series of leadership programming developed and presented by National FFA for state officers to support their year of service.  This series of programming delivered in May, June, and July provides training in life management, presentations, social skills, personal goals and assessment.

Enrichment Training – This several-day training retreat is created for state officers to develop their facilitation skills, build a social media presence and learn proper etiquette for media interviews. The state officer team will also work together to build team strengths and character.

Partnership Visits – Meet with agribusiness representatives and government officials - State officers also have the opportunities to meet with people that influence agriculture and education on state, national, and regional levels.

State Officer Summit - This is a week-long leadership conference for state officers from each association held annually in Washington, D.C. In addition to leadership development, participants develop an understanding of partner relationships and the initial phase of the national delegate process.

Other opportunities the state officers develop, coordinate and conduct throughout the year include:
  • SLCDO (State Leadership Conference for District Officers)
  • COLT (Chapter Officer Leadership Training)
  • Iowa State Fair
  • Chapter Workshops
  • GFU (Greenhand Fire-Up)
  • Discovery/212°/360° Conferences
  • ILSSO (International Leadership Seminar for State Officers)
  • Chapter Banquet Speeches
  • Legislative Symposium
  • CDEs (Career Development Events)
  • SLC (State Leadership Conference a.k.a. State Convention)
Serving as a state FFA officer is an honor as well as a great responsibility. The year of service as an officer is an unforgettable one. The privilege of serving more than 15,300 members in Iowa is an incredible, life-shaping opportunity that few get to experience.
