Gillett FFA 2016-2017 Officer Applications

A FFA officer position is a great show of your leadership skills and initiative to serve others. Here are the important details to know regarding running for an officer position.

  • A completed application AND resume are due on April 29 to Ms. Claflin at the end of the school day. Example resumes are available from Ms. Claflin.
  • Please create a 1-page 8.5×11 biography sheet to turn in with your application. These will be shared with the nominating committee and chapter members by placing on the wall outside the Ag room. It should include the following:
    • Your name
    • Your current grade
    • A picture of yourself
    • Answers to the following questions:
      • Why I want to serve as a Gillett FFA Officer?
      • Why do you think others should join FFA?
      • Favorite FFA memory?
      • Other sports, extracurricular activities, jobs?
      • What is your Supervised Agricultural Experience program?
      • If you could be any piece of farm equipment, what would you be and why?
    • After you submit your materials, you will be interviewed by a nominating committee consisting of FFA Alumni members and retiring officers on a date to be determined. This is an approximately 10-minute interview that lets the committee get to know you better. You need official dress for this.
    • You will find out if you received an officer position prior to the FFA banquet. However, the positions of the new officer team will be a surprise until revealed at the banquet on May 20.


  • Applications/resume/posters due to Ms. Claflin – April 29
  • Chapter voting – May 2-6 (it will be a blind ballot, but each member has to give Ms. Claflin their ballots in a sealed envelope and check-in to prevent multiple ballots per member)
  • Interviews with nominating committee – TBD
  • Results of election process – Week prior to banquet
  • Announcement of officers – May 20 at banquet

Please ask Ms. Claflin if you have any questions! Good luck!
