North Dakota FFA Association Executive Secretary Craig Kleven says membership in FFA continues to grow. “Convention has over 1,300 members, plus advisors and chaperones. We’re also at a new record for membership in North Dakota at 7,994 students. It’s a remarkable era.” Despite the growth in chapters, Kleven says there’s still an ag teacher shortage. “We’ve seen some retirements and people leaving the profession. With the growth, we’ve had nearly ten chapters chartered since I’ve been in this role and so we just can’t find enough ag teachers.”
