The Texas FFA State Officer team is equipped and ready to serve members across the state of Texas. The team is looking forward to engaging through workshops, keynote addresses, and meetings.


23-24 State Officer Visit Request      

The 2023-2024 state officer team stands ready and willing to serve our members. To request a state officer for an event at the chapter, district, or area level, please complete this form.

This form is only for outside of classroom instruction time and does not include any workshops that are facilitated by the travel team. Should you wish for a visit from the travel team, contact Barbie Mosley barbie@texasffa.org or your area travel coordinator. (Please click link above to access request form)

In person state officer travel requires approval from the State Officer Leadership Development Coordinator and the Executive Director. Additionally, the state officer must have a specific role at in person events in order for their attendance to be approved. For example. they should be doing something that would add value to the event (facilitating a workshop, etc.).

We are asking for a two-week notice on in-person requests. Allow up to five business days to receive a response from state staff regarding your request. Please reach out to Barbie Mosley, State Officer and Leadership Development Coordinator at barbie@texasffa.org if you have any questions or need additional help. 

Please note that submission of the form does not guarantee attendance but is required for officer assignment. The Texas FFA will contact your organization and discuss the requested officer's availability with you.


Travel Team Workshops      

The travel team has prepared several adaptable and dynamic leadership workshops to facilitate during chapter visits. Each workshop was uniquely developed with a target audience and/or presentation setting in mind. The 2023-2024 team polled the Ag Science teachers across the state, striving to fill the diverse needs within each classroom.

Involvement - The power of YES! (Large Group Presentation) 
Opportunities are available for students to take advantage of every day. In this workshop, students will develop the motivation to take advantage of the countless opportunities and become more involved in FFA through connections, contests, and other events. All students must do is get out of their comfort zone and say YES

The “Power of Yes” workshop can also be used with non-traditional ag students to advocate for the benefits of FFA and the skills gained as it transitions into various extracurricular activities, classroom requirements, and further career success.



Effective Leadership: “Learning to Lead” (Classroom/Officer Team)
In this adaptable workshop, students will learn to be influential and effective leaders through authenticity, vulnerability, and selfless service. This workshop focuses on realizing who we are and what we bring to the table by identifying personal values, evaluating growth areas, and considering who can provide guidance. Students will then discover the importance of inviting others to their table through acts of service. This workshop can easily be modified to focus on a classroom setting or officer team. 

Pasture to Plate: Opportunities in Agriculture! (Classroom/Groups under 50)
In this fully agriculture-based workshop, students will gain a newfound interest and appreciation for opportunities in agriculture by exploring the process of ag commodities into everyday products. They will identify everyday products from agriculture, walk through the steps of getting those products through the supply chain, and recognize the diverse career pathways tied to agriculture. This workshop can also easily be adapted as needed.
