Why Join FFA      
Premier Leadership. Personal Growth. Career Success. These are not only crucial components to the National FFA Organization's mission statement, they are what over half a million students across the country are working towards as an FFA member. Wisconsin FFA members have the opportunity to develop leadership skills through officer positions, competitions, and conferences.

Members are growing public speaking skills and self-esteem by learning within and outside the agricultural classroom. The over 25,000 Wisconsin FFA members are preparing for careers, whether they enter a career directly related to agriculture or not, with hands-on learning experiences and real-life situations.

How to Join      
In order to join FFA, your local school system must offer agricultural education and have an active FFA chapter for you to join. If this is so, contact your school's agricultural education instructor for more information on joining!

If your school doesn't have an agricultural education program, take steps to open a program in your school. In order to accomplish this task we strongly recommend that you contact our state agricultural education staff to express your interest and ask for assistance on regulations, requirements and resources for planning the new program.

Membership Models      
Traditional FFA Membership Dues
Total Membership Dues Package for State and National is $12.50. State FFA Membership dues are $5.50. Membership dues for the National FFA Organization are $7 a year. Of this total cost, $2.50 goes to the publication and distribution of FFA New Horizons, our national magazine. A subscription to the magazine is included in your membership fee.

Local FFA chapters may charge additional dues for membership. These charges would be in addition to the $12.50 so the actual cost of membership may be more.

Affiliation FFA Membership Fee Program
Affiliation Fee Program allows students who are currently enrolled in secondary agricultural education programs (grades 5th-12th) or graduates who have met the local, state and national requirements to be eligible for all the benefits and opportunities offered through FFA, as a part of the total program delivery.
