2022 was a year of celebrating our recent accomplishments while also preparing for the future.
In August, we had a major reason to celebrate. We announced record-high membership with 850,823 FFA members across all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We are excited to see that the demand for FFA is stronger than ever and that young people continue seeking out our organization as a place to belong and grow.
We were also excited to welcome more than 69,000 FFA members, advisors, exhibitors, alumni, supporters and guests to the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo in October. This premier event allowed us to recognize members’ accomplishments, honor the strong FFA support system and dream about what the future might hold.
In the spirit of forward-thinking, National FFA launched a three-year strategic plan in early 2022. With the plan as our road map, we have worked over the past year to lay the foundation for reaching our goals and strengthening FFA on a local, state and national level.
The updated plan includes three strategic priorities designed to create a clear path toward meeting and exceeding our collective objectives.
Throughout this report, you will get a glimpse of the work being done to address each strategic priority and enhance FFA. Visit StrategicPlan.FFA.org to learn more.
We are excited for this journey that we have embarked on, but we know that our goals are only attainable with strong support. We are grateful for the many corporate partners and individual donors who have stepped up over the past year to provide financial resources, expertise and encouragement as we partner to propel FFA and agriculture into the future.
Furthermore, the success of National FFA is reliant upon steadfast partners throughout our delivery system. The dedication of agriculture educators, state FFA associations and other agricultural education organizations enable us to aim high and join forces to accomplish more together than any of us could individually.
No matter your connection to FFA, we are thankful for all that you do.
As we reflect on 2022 in this annual report, we hope you will celebrate all that we accomplished together and be inspired by the role you can play in the future of FFA.
CEO, National FFA
