Teachers, please make note that this year we will hold the FFA Area Officer elections at the Area banquets in May and NOT at the Area meetings like we have in the past. So there is no need to bring FFA delegates to the Area meetings in April, but every FFA Chapter should make plans to have at 2 voting delegates at the Area Banquet. May 11 for Area I and May 13 for Area II. At the beginning of the banquet we will elect the Area Officers.
