National FFA Organization      
Founded in 1928, the Future Farmers of America brought together students, teachers and agribusiness to solidify support for agricultural education. In Kansas City's Baltimore Hotel, 33 young farmboys charted a course for the future. They could not have foreseen how the organization would grow and thrive.
Since 1928, millions of agriculture students - no one knows exactly how many - have donned the official FFA jacket and championed the FFA creed. FFA has opened its doors and its arms to minorities and women, ensuring that all students could reap the benefits of agricultural education.
Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadershippersonal growth and career success through agricultural education. Now, the organization is expanding the nation's view of "traditional" agriculture and finding new ways to infuse agriculture into the classroom.

California FFA Association      
A meeting for the purpose of forming the California Association of the Future Farmers of America was held at Hotel Claremont, Oakland, October 26, 1928. This was prior to the National FFA Organization meeting of November 20, 1928, which was held at the Hotel Baltimore, Kansas City, Missouri.
Following the National Convention, California received National Charter No. 4.
