Brian Walsh, VA FFA

Each year at the National FFA Convention, six students are elected by delegates to represent the organization as National FFA officers: president, secretary and vice presidents representing the Central, Southern, Eastern and Western regions of the country.

Brian Walsh of Woodstock, Virginia was elected 2013-2014 National FFA President November 2, 2012. It has been nearly 35 years since a Virginian has held that same position. He served as 2011-2012 Virginia State FFA President before running for national office.

“As a national officer, I aspire to aid in helping our members find, create and live out their own story,” Walsh said. “Through the creation of strong, personalized relationships, I will help FFA members across this nation develop an understanding of who they are and what they stand for.”

National officers commit to a year of service to the National FFA Organization. Each travels more than 100,000 national and international miles; visiting approximately 40 states to interact with business and industry leaders, thousands of FFA members and teachers, corporate sponsors, government and education officials, state FFA leaders, the general public and more. The team will lead personal growth and leadership training seminars for FFA members throughout the country and help set policies that will guide the future of FFA and promote agricultural literacy.
