State Council Position Applications:
Each year the Oregon FFA Alumni & Supporters delegate body at our Annual Meeting held during the Oregon FFA State Convention elects council members to help guide the support that we can offer to our to our Alumni and Supporters Chapters. To allow our delegates and alumni members across Oregon the opportunity to learn a bit more about those individuals interested in a council position, last year we added this application to our election process.

The Nomination and Election process will be as follows:

  • Those interested will review application packet and fill out an application.  Electronic packet includes:
  • Applicants must be a current rostered member in good standing with Oregon and National FFA Alumni and Supporters by March 1st 2020.
  • Applications will be due back to the Alumni and Supporters by January 31st 2020.
  • Completed applications will be reviewed and sent out to all Alumni and Supporters Chapters so they can be informed on who is running for the positions.
  • At the annual meeting all candidates will be given the opportunity to give a short speech before the election.
  • A prepared ballot for each position will be used for voting by the delegates.
  • No nominations will be taken from the floor.

Elected council positions are, President-Elect, (President, Past-President), Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter, and six regional Vice-Presidents.  The regional Vice-Presidents are strategically placed annually.  All council positions are a two year term. Elections for council positions rotate every other year as follows:

  • Treasurer, Reporter and 3 VPs on even years (2020, 2022, 2024, etc.)
  • Secretary, 3 VPs and the President Elect on odd years (2019, 2021, 2023, etc.)
  • (President-Elect candidates must be current council member with minimum two years of service.)

Council Members are expected at all times to conduct themselves in a professional business-like manner and dress in appropriate attire for all recognized activities of the OR FFA Alumni. Appropriate attire is business casual. Wearing official FFA logo and gear is highly encouraged, especially when going on stage at prestigious events.  All council members should wear official name badge at all recognized FFA activities.

If you should have questions, please contact Past-President, Swede Salo or President,, Tom Rutledge.

Thank you again for your interest in serving on the Oregon FFA Alumni & Supporters State Council.
