Association Update

State Officer Request - NOW AVAILABLE

The request form for a State Officer to visit your chapter has been restored on our website at or you can request an officer directly by clicking here.  Please note that all state officer requests must be submitted using the only request system.  Face to face/verbal requests are not considered “official” and will not be placed on the officers calendar until an online request has been submitted and approved.  Once your request has been processed, a confirmation email will be sent to you and a state officer will contact you within 48 hours (first by email). 

Please keep in mind that there are several times throughout the year that State Officers are unavailable. Some of those times include:

  • National FFA Convention (October)
  • International Leadership Seminar for State Officers (January)
  • Florida State Fair (February)
  • Florida Strawberry Festival (March)
  • State Convention Retreat (May)

The dates of those events are published on the official Florida FFA Calendar.
