Texas Delegates Contribute to National FFA Business    
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 | Author: Texas FFA News

Held as a central and integral part of the annual National FFA Convention and Expo, the delegate process brings together 475 student leaders from each of the National FFA Organization’s 52 state associations to conduct the business of the organization and share ideas and perspectives that will ensure the continued progress of the organization.

Texas was allocated a record 71 delegates, the greatest number of delegates seated by a state association since the current 475-member delegate body was instituted in 1991.

The delegates took up six issues which are submitted by states, vetted by representatives at the annual State Presidents Conference held in Washington D.C. in July and then deliberated by the delegates who submit input to the National FFA Organization’s Board of Directors. Texas members have an opportunity to submit their ideas each year through area officers who discuss potential national issue submissions at the State Leadership Conference held in June.

Subjects taken up by the delegates in 2017 included: Accommodating Students with Special Needs, An Agricultural Education CDE, Chapter Member Programs and Opportunities, Effective Communication with Members, The Inclusion of Unpaid SAEs, and The Nature and Structure of Delegate Work. 

The Texas Delegation not only had leadership in the committee structure, but maintained a strong presence on the delegate floor as they discussed the committee reports and provided input on recommended adjustments.

While the delegate recommendations on all issues are submitted for further review by the National FFA Board of Directors, the Texas Delegation used its position of high representation as one of solidarity and strength in representing the best interest of the more than 119,000 members of the Texas FFA.
