Kansas FFA Association


Running for Kansas FFA Office

Dear Potential State Officer Candidate,

I hope you are looking forward to the new semester and all of the exciting spring FFA events that lie ahead of you! One of the events that will occur in the spring is the selection process for the 2014-2015 Kansas FFA Officer Team. If you are interested in seeking the opportunity to serve the Kansas FFA Association as a state officer in the coming year, please consider becoming a part of this process.

One of the most rewarding experiences a member can have is serving the Kansas FFA Association as a Kansas FFA Officer. During their year, state officers develop lifelong friendships with each other as well as members across our state and country. The year of serving as a state officer is a year of personal growth, commitment to others, and passion. As such, the decision to run for a state officer requires much time, consideration, and a sincere commitment to service.

I strongly encourage anyone with the desire to serve the Kansas FFA Association to participate in the selection process by running for a state office. The process is a great opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of others and to develop both personally and professionally. The Intent to Run form can be found on the Kansas FFA Website and is due no later than February 15th, 2014. The application will soon follow.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this process, please feel free to contact me at ebeneda@ksu.edu or the Kansas FFA Association. Thank you for your time and consideration of this great opportunity!

In Service,

Emily Beneda
2014 Nominating Committee Chair
