What is FFA?      
FFA is a dynamic student-led leadership development organization for students of agricultural education. The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

What does FFA stand for?      
F-F-A stands for Future Farmers of America, which is the official name of the organization, but we don’t use the full name and instead operate as the “FFA” because Future Farmers of America implies that we are all preparing to be farmers. Agriculture is much broader than farming and ranching. Members study things such as horticulture, aquaculture, food sciences, accounting, wildlife management, mechanics and engineering.

Texas FFA Areas      
The Texas FFA Association provides leadership and management for active, junior, and alumni FFA members. The state is divided into twelve administrative areas which operate as semi-autonomous associations.

These twelve areas are divided into districts. The number of districts per area ranges from four to seven and there are 66 total districts in the state.

Local FFA Chapters      
The Texas FFA Association issues and revokes charters in accordance to the mandates of the state association’s constitution, bylaws and board-adopted policies, provides support services to local chapters and administers events which support the agricultural education instructional programs. Direct oversight of local programs is the domain of local boards of trustees and administrators. Each chapter has requirements mandated by the state Commissioner of Education CTE Statewide Coordinator for Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources constitution and bylaws to remain in good standing with the state association. Pursuant to National FFA Organization policy, the state association has stewardship of the FFA emblem and trademarks, and the state association is duty bound to act when these are used inappropriately

There are currently 1095 chapters in Texas.
