"It is an honor to be an officer in the FFA..."

Officer installation ceremony, Official FFA Manual

The New Mexico FFA State Officer Selection Process closely mirrors that of the National FFA Organization. Candidates will go through seven rounds where they can display their FFA and agricultural knowledge, public speaking skills, leadership ability, and facilitation style. A nominating committee made up of two members from each of the six districts will evaluate the candidates and provide a recommendation to the delegates at the annual State FFA Convention.

The following resources have been provided to assist you as you prepare for the Nominating Committee Process, either as a candidate or a committee member.

ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY: MAY 1, 2014

*IF ELECTED: The 2014-2015 State Officer Team will travel to Camp of the Tall Pines in Weed, NM for training until mid-afternoon on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014, and will be expected to provide transportation home.
