As a team, we decided early in our year to place a large emphasis on supporting and encouraging agriculture teachers and FFA advisors who are essential to the sustainable success of the National FFA Organization. To thank our teachers and advisors, we have created a letter sharing our appreciation for their efforts. If you would, please take a moment and forward this link on to the teachers in your state. https://www.ffa.org/FFAResources/Publications/ffapulse/201305/advisors/Pages/Special-feature.aspx?smtrctid=1150966849 Also, as the summer heats up and many chapter officer teams begin to work on planning for the year, please encourage your chapters to check out the team's Officer 2 Officer series!! The video series features national officers and allows our team to share some helpful hints and ideas to chapter officers on ways to better serve their chapter.
