FFA Alumni & Supporter Membership: Adult membership is open to anyone who is interested in supporting and promoting agriculture, agricultural education and the FFA at the local, state and national level.
If you are proud of FFA and want to help local FFA members acquire knowledge and experience from agricultural education and FFA activities –becoming an adult member is for you! FFA advisors and members all across the country rely on volunteers to help support their chapters through the gifts of time, talent and resources in order to gain community support and give teachers more time and freedom to do what they do best – teach students. Join us and give back your skills, starting at the local level.
Types of Membership
$250 (includes National and State)
Life membership is a one-time investment in the future of our organization. Your investment ensures that the FFA will be around for future generations of agriculturalists and to help provide leadership training opportunities to as many members as we possibly can so that they can exert an influence in their home and community. Life members receive a membership card, a membership certificate, a lifetime subscription to FFA New Horizons magazine, the ability to attend personal and professional development conferences and conventions, and additional member benefits.
Annual Chapter Membership
$100 National Fee
$100 State Fee
These are per Alumni Chapter
The fee for an At-Large membership is $10 for National Dues annually and $6 for State Dues annually.
Individuals can also be At-Large members of the Nebraska FFA Alumni & Supporters without being a member of a chapter associated with a FFA Chapter/Program.
The annual fee is designed to easily mobilize volunteers to support local agricultural education programs and their FFA chapters. Chapters can provide memberships, services and benefits to an unlimited number of volunteers/supporters for one fee while keeping the rest of their funds for local programs.
The annual fee covers a chapter’s ability to:
- Use the National FFA trademark emblems under the National FFA Trademark Policy.
- Use the National FFA 501c3 status (application required, not automatic).
- Use the National FFA membership management system.
- Provide individual members/volunteers with the National FFA Forever Blue Benefits program.
- Create a local chapter network within the Forever Blue Network to help network and engage alumni and supporters from around the world.
- Use National FFA marketing materials/educational training/member opportunities and events.
