The Heart Of FFA Can Be Found In Every Member, Every Chapter, Every Day.
Which type of FFA Chapter do you operate?
Traditionally, membership fees for FFA has been collected from each member wishing to join the chapter and the advisor and officers created incentives for students to join (Standard Membership Option). A newer philosophy is where money is raised in some fashion (donations, fundraising, etc.) to pay membership for every student that takes and agriscience class (Affiliate Membership Option). Membership is entered the in the same manner through National FFA's website.
The Chapter Affiliate Membership Option enables every agriscience student enrolled in the school to be a member of the local chapter.
National ($7) + State ($3) + District ($2) = $12 total (plus any local dues that may be added)
