The Kansas FFA Association was chartered by the National FFA Organization in 1928. The Association has a current membership of over 9,000 members in 182 chapters. FFA chapters are established in 175 high school agriculture education departments, in 158 unified school districts. FFA is found in both rural and urban areas with chapters being located in or very near the cities of Garden City, Hays, Hutchinson, Lawrence, Emporia, Wichita, Manhattan, Newton, Olathe, Pittsburg, Salina, and Topeka. FFA members can be found in 85 of the 105 counties across Kansas
The Kansas FFA Association is led by the state officer team – six students who are freshman & sophomores in college serving as president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, reporter, and sentinel. In addition, adult guidance and leadership is provided by the state advisor and executive secretary. Chapter members serve as delegates to the state convention, elect the state officers, and conduct official business of the association.
This is a very exciting time for Kansas FFA as the Association is experiencing growth, a surge of new opportunities for its members, and increasing support from the community and former members. Our annual State FFA Convention continues to evolve into one of the premier state conventions in the nation highlighted by our action-packed general sessions and our ever-growing career show. Kansas FFA members are taking advantage of new leadership opportunities through our state delegate process. Former members and FFA supporters are providing bright futures for our current FFA members by becoming involved with our Alumni and Foundation.
Agriculture is the wave of the future. Today’s agriculture education students will be the leaders and innovators of tomorrow who will be responsible for ensuring a safe and stable food and fiber supply for the growing world population. Kansas FFA is at the forefront of preparing students for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success in agriculture and many other industries.
