State Officer Visits/Chapter Programs
Don't miss out on the opportunity to request a State Officer to come visit your chapter and present a chapter program! The link to request a State Officer to visit your chapter is available on www.flaffa.org 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 be prepared to discuss the details of your request and any expectations that you have for the officers visit.

A final list of registered teams/participants will be sent out today. No additional registrations can be accommodated.

Sub-Districts would not be possible without a village of people who are dedicated to the FFA.
