About Us

FFA Alumni play a very important part in keeping agricultural education and FFA programs in our local schools. FFA relies on its FFA Alumni to garner support for FFA from their local communities, raise funds for chapter activities and scholarships, assist at FFA leadership camps and conferences, and much more. You didn’t have to be a former FFA member to support FFA, agriculture education and the future of agriculture.

Mission and Vision

 The Wisconsin FFA Alumni Association helps support the programs and activities of nearly 21,000 FFA members in the state.

The Mission of the Wisconsin FFA Alumni Association: The Wisconsin FFA Alumni Association, Inc. strives to be Wisconsin's premier agriculture education advocate. We support the local FFA Alumni Chapters so that they are better equipped to assist their local community, agriculture instructor(s) and agriculture youth.

The Vision of the Wisconsin FFA Alumni Association: We are advocates for FFA and Advocating for Agriculture Education
