What is the FFA Planning Committee? – A Brief History

The FFA Planning Committee of the Eastern States Exposition came into being in the 1930’s. It was composed of State Supervisors of Agricultural Education in New England who met with the Management of The Big E and decided the FFA Program for the next year. This meeting developed into an Annual Meeting to assess the strengths and weakness of the FFA Program and propose new additions or deletions. As often happens there were few deletions. Sometime prior to 1950, the State Supervisors convinced Mr. Neville Hunsicker of the Agricultural Branch of the then Federal Security Agency that The Big E was the place to hold an Eastern Regional FFA Public Speaking Contest thus the beginnings of the participation of the region in all of the FFA events offered by the planning committee of The Big E CDE Events.
