FFA Adult Board

FFA Delegates at the 1997 California FFA State Leadership Conference voted to approve Article VI in the FFA State Constitution establishing the California FFA Adult Board. The Board was established in response to a California Department of Education (CDE) ruling mandating that all Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) include an Adult Board to oversee fiscal operations. The FFA Adult Board consists of elected individuals from throughout the state empowered to represent the interests of California FFA students and have fiscal oversight responsibilities of state and regional California FFA budgets.
