Committees are a great way for students to get involved and help plan various activities in our chapter. They offer leadership opportunities to any student looking to be immersed in FFA. Committees meet once a month, typically on Friday mornings before school. There are three committees you can choose to participate in: Building Communities, Growing Leaders, and Strengthening Agriculture. Each one is responsible for planning and implementing certain activities. The committee chairs are composed of our three vice presidents, while the overarching committee is led by our president. That overarching committee is known as the Executive Committee.
