Welcome to Dallas and the 88th Annual Texas FFA State Convention, presented by Justin Boots and Farm Credit. Dallas has occupied an important place in Texas FFA history. Five of our first six conventions were held in Dallas and the 88th convention is the 16th convention to be hosted in this city. The courtesy corps, now in its 50th year of operation, began here in Dallas in 1967.

Throughout history, Dallas has been the heart of Texas culture and home to successful businesses, sports teams, and the State Fair of Texas. It was the hard work and dedication of this city’s “Infinite Beginnings” that led Dallas to where it is today. This year it is the Texas FFA’s honor to show Dallas our “Infinite Commitment” to agriculture and society through our members’ growth and achievements as we are welcomed into this great city. Since the last convention in Dallas, our membership has grown by more than 20,000, to a record 115,622 members today!

This year at convention, we will be honoring the “Infinite Excellence” and achievements of students through their Supervised Agricultural Experiences and other FFA related accomplishments. These students along with your fellow members will be awarded more than $2 million in scholarships from our generous supporters’ “Infinite Investment.” This week you have opportunity of “Infinite Empowerment” to grow as a person, create many new friendships, and have an unforgettable time! You will have the opportunity to experience motivational speakers, listen to retiring addresses, hear the Texas FFA chorus as they display their “Infinite Talents,” and elect your new State President.

You, along with 12,000 members, advisors, sponsors, and guests will be apart of an event that will inspire you to be “Infinite." During this week, you will see how the Texas FFA has an “Infinite Influence” in the lives of the more than 115,000 members. The same influence that started decades ago, has and will continue to exponentially grow into the future.

Throughout each session, we hope that you are inspired to take what you’ve learned, then apply it in your homes and communities. We as a State Officer Team challenge you to look beyond adversity, break the barriers, and live a life that is “Infinite.” Your 2015-2016 Texas FFA State Officer Team would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you this year!
