Read the following scenario and give your response:
I understand my responsibilities as a member of the Chapter Officer Team and I am committed to the position and will diligently strive to execute the responsibilities for my post. I realize the time and commitment that is required to achieve success in this position needs to be a priority for me.
My responsibilities include (but are not limited to) attending all chapter meetings (10) and weekly executive meetings during the year, Winter Officer Retreat (Date TBD), Leadership Banquets (1), Opening/Closing Contest (1), take part on the Speech Contest and other events as I volunteer.
I understand if something comes up and I cannot attend an event, I will give my agriculture instructors at least 2 weeks notice to adjust. I recognize I will receive a “strike” for every unexcused absence at an event. If I receive two strikes my FFA Advisor, my parents and I will develop an improvement plan. I understand that failure to adequately meet the requirements as an FFA Officer (four strikes) will result in removal from office.
I realize that as an FFA officer, I will be a role model to other students. I will strive to be a good example as I lead others. I know I will be representing my school and my community and I will always do so in a positive way.
I believe academics are important and I will work to maintain at least a 2.0 GPA. If I fall short during a quarter or a semester grading period, I will work with the FFA advisors to bring it up. If my GPA is not up by the next grading period, I will resign my office so I can better focus on my grades.
I have read my child’s responsibilities as a Wasco FFA Officer and give my child permission to run for said office. I understand the FFA Winter Officer Retreat, (scheduled to be determined), is an important planning tool and will insure my child will be available.
