The Merit Committee maintains and organizes the chapter's merit point system and keeps track of the members who are setting high standards of achievement in each class.

The Cooperation Committee helps plan the annual banquet; works with other organizations in the community; communicates with Alumni and other community members; and determines the winners of the Honorary Chapter Award annually.



The Community Sevice Committee plans and organizes the chapter's role in various commnity service projects such as Orient Clean-Up Days, Pumpkin Days, Adopt-A Highway Program, and anything else that comes up throughout the year.



Annually, the Leadership Committee helps develop the chapter's program of activities along with training newly elected officers, educating committe chairmen on responsibilities, and conduting informational demostrations and programs for the community.  This committee also promotes the participation of chapter members in leadership conventions, livestock showing, and career development events.


The Earnings and Savings Committee manages the finances for the chapter along with the elected Treasurer.  Some activities include collecting dues, transacting pizza sales, buying food/drinks for the milk machine, ordering t-shirts, and assisting members with raising capital for their SAE projects.



The Conduct of Meetings Committee ensures that monthly FFA meetings are carried out with proper parliamentary procedure and all the members know the system.  The committee also keeps attendance records and helps with the purchasing of greenhand FFA jackets every year.



The Scholarship Committee's goal is to provide chapter members with resources that will assist them in reaching their educational goals.  The committee maintains an up-to-date agricultural library, plans educational tours, provides notebooks for chapter members, and also gives out scholarship awards to seniors that have excelled scholastically in agricultural education.


The Membership Development Committee's job is to recruit new members.  Some of the activities that are carried out by the committee include hosting FFA Week games, talking to 8th graders about joining, making promotional videos, developing elementary activities to get younger kids involved with the FFA, and carrying out various ideas to get other students interested in joining FFA and the agricultural education program.
