This person is also responsible for maintaining membership records and participation in activities. Edon FFA Secretary Carlie Kiess earned a gold rating on her state-level book and placed third in the district.
The Chapter Treasurer is responsible for receiving, recording and depositing FFA funds and collecting dues. They also issue receipts and maintain accurate accounting records. Treasurer of Edon FFA, Olivia Mitchell earned a gold rating on her state-level book.
Chapter reporters are responsible for compiling the chapter album, publishing a chapter newsletter or website, and sending news articles to local newspapers. They also serve as the chapter’s photographer and keep records of the chapter’s history. Edon FFA Reporter, Kerrin Towers, earned a gold rating on his state-level album.
