(TRENTON) – The 2024-2025 New Jersey FFA officer team elected as part of the 95th Annual State FFA Convention represents four chapters from Monmouth, Warren, Cape May, and Hunterdon counties. They will be leading a state record membership high 3,438 in 37 chapters from around the state. The officers will represent New Jersey FFA at several state and national functions throughout the year.

The new officers, and their respective chapters are Niccolo Conte (Allentown FFA), President; Allison Josielewski, (Allentown FFA), Vice President; Abrianna Portillo, (Phillipsburg FFA), Treasurer; Tyler Murnaghan (Cape May Tech FFA), Secretary; Nina Weiland, (Hunterdon County ESEA FFA), Reporter; and William Rutherford (Cape May Tech FFA), Sentinel.

“We have a committed and enthusiastic group of officers who are prepared to lead a membership that continues to grow,” said New Jersey State FFA Advisor and Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Education Program Leader Erin Noble. “They understand the responsibilities that come with these positions and the importance of their roles as leaders as they set the example for FFA chapters in our state.”

FFA is a component of a food, agriculture and natural resources program of instruction that prepares students to pursue fulfilling careers in the business, science, education, and technology of agriculture. There are nearly 950,000 members across the nation. 

Some of the state officer duties include assisting chapters in the execution of their program of activities; encouraging FFA members to participate in food, agriculture and natural resources education and FFA programs; maintaining positive relations with members, the agribusiness sector, the public and others interested in agricultural education; traveling to FFA chapters around the state 2-3 times per month; assisting at career development events, including fall, spring, and summer; and representing the New Jersey FFA Association at events of other state agricultural organizations.
