The National FFA Organization aims to answer the need for more skilled graduates to fill job openings in the field of agriculture, which is evident in the organization’s growing membership.
Currently the organization has a record student membership of 700,170, which is an increase from 669,989 in 2018. The top-six student membership states are Texas, California, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio and Missouri. Interest in FFA and agricultural education continues to grow as membership continues to increase. This year the organization has more than 100,000 Latino members, 45 percent of the membership is female and 52 percent of the membership being male. Females hold more than 50 percent of the leadership positions. FFA chapters can be found in 24 of the 25 largest U.S. cities. Visit www.ffa.org for more information.
