INDIANAPOLIS — The 2020-21 National FFA Officer Team will be selected during the virtual 93rd National FFA Convention & Expo, electing six new FFA members to serve as the student leaders of the National FFA Organization.
The process to become a national officer is arduous, with the candidates — each state FFA association can submit one individual member annually — taking part in an extensive online interview process with the National FFA Officer Nominating Committee. The committee is comprised of students who interview and select the National FFA Officers during each National FFA Convention & Expo.
It takes a highly motivated person to become a successful National FFA Officer—an opportunity afforded to few members. Becoming a national officer requires members to learn about their passions and gain a better understanding of what life as a national officer is like. The life of a national officer is nonstop hard work and never-ending commitments, but it is a life-changing experience — one they will cherish forever.
Thirty-eight candidates vied for national office during Phase 1 of the selection process. The 2020 candidates advancing to Phase 2 are (listed in alphabetical order by state):
|Jamie Specca||New Jersey|
|Billie Lentz||North Dakota|
|Trevor Swiger||West Virginia|
Be sure to watch Session 6 on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. EDT to see who will be named to the 2020-21 national officer team. Catch the session on RFD-TV, The Cowboy Channel or streamed through RFD-TV Now, The Cowboy Channel+ app, FFA.org, Facebook Live and YouTube.
