WHAT IS FFA?
FFA is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
FFA develops members’ potential and helps them discover their talent through hands-on experiences, which give members the tools to achieve real-world success.
The official name of the organization is the National FFA Organization. The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change.
In California FFA, competition is broken up into five levels; Chapter, Section, Region, State, and National. Each level is lead by six or more officers who are slated and elected by their peers. The San Luis Obispo FFA Chapter has seven officers who are elected every April. The officers include a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter, Sentinel, and Historian.
