The National FFA Board of Directors and National FFA Board of Trustees announced the resignation of CEO of the National FFA Organization and National FFA Foundation, effective January 15. 

In a statement, Poeschl said, “I know there have been challenges we have faced during my tenure, but my intentions have been for the best interests of FFA and our student members.” He adds, “I’m proud of what we have accomplished together, but now it’s time for the next CEO of FFA to step in and make their mark.”  

Dr. James Woodard, National FFA Advisor and Board Chair, says, “Mark informed us Thursday that he has decided to end his role as National FFA CEO. 

The board wishes Mark well, and we acknowledge the impact he has made in the last four and a half years as National FFA leader.” 

Poeschl began his tenure leading FFA in 2016, from Cargill Animal Nutrition.
