A tradition that began in 1931 at Texas A&M is returning to campus this spring. A tradition whose focus is to promote agriculture through social and service activities as well as career development. The tradition being re-established is Collegiate FFA.
In October a group of ALEC students attended the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. Four of these students returned with the assignment of creating a plan to re-charter the Collegiate FFA (CFFA) Chapter at Texas A&M – and they have done just that.
Step one in re-establishing the chapter has been to form a committee of COALS students, who were recommended by professors across the college, for the initial TAMU CFFA committee. This start-up committee is currently focusing their efforts on designing plans for recruitment and public relations for the CFFA Chapter.
By the end of March, membership will be open to anyone interested in joining the TAMU CFFA Chapter. The organization’s first event will be their involvement with “Farmers Fight.” This event will be held on campus on April 12 for agriculture students to advocate for the industry to their peers.
The ALEC Department is excited to see great things from the TAMU CFFA Chapter.
