NEW Affiliation Program (OPTIONAL)

The membership affiliation program is designed to easily mobilize volunteers to support local agricultural education programs and their FFA chapters. This program allows chapters to provide membership, services and benefits to an unlimited number of volunteers/supporters for one fee while keeping the rest of their funds right at home for their local programs. This program will also assist the National FFA Alumni in their strategic goal of having an active alumni chapter in every FFA chapter in the country and dramatically increasing the number of advocates and supporters with time, talent and resources at the local, state and national level.

If your chapter has 24 or less lifetime members the chapter pays the annual $250 state program fee and the $100 national program fee.  With that $350 total fee the chapter is able to sign up an UNLIMITED number of annual members!
If your chapter has 25 + lifetime members the chapter pays only the annual $250 state program fee and the chapter is able to sign up an UNLIMITED number of annual members!

The annual members signed up through this program receive the same benefits of annual membership described below.  If the chapter chooses to participate in the program they must sign the agreement and give to the Wisconsin FFA Alumni prior to submitting membership through FFA.org.  Click HERE to learn more about this optional program!

Types of Chapters

Non-Traditional Chapters
Non-Traditional Chapters are available to groups, businesses and corporations as a means of providing their members/employees an opportunity to individually and collectively help support Agricultural Education programs and FFA chapters as a unified Alumni Chapter without being tied directly to a local FFA chapter. Non-Traditional Chapters connect geographically-separate, yet otherwise-linked individuals to one another and allow them to rally around nearby chapters, even if those chapters are not their home chapters. This connection allows them to be a helping hand to local FFA advisors, as well as to state associations and the national organization. Click HERE for more information.
