Why start an FFA Alumni Affiliate?
Your FFA alumni affiliate can be a wonderful resource and support for FFA advisors, mentors for FFA members, advocate for agricultural education, identify funding opportunities, help to prepare teams for competition and much more. To learn more about starting your own alumni affiliate visit www.ffa.org/alumni.
Membership in the Minnesota and National FFA Alumni organizations makes is possible for students from your local FFA chapter to qualify for Washington Leadership Conference, State Greenhand Leadership Camp, and State Leadership Camp for Chapter Officers scholarships.
Member affiliates are eligible to apply for National FFA Alumni grants and new Minnesota affiliate grants. In addition, you are supporting the effort to expand the number of alumni affiliates in the state and continue valuable activities such as the Minnesota FFA Hall of Fame, the FFA Alumni Association Annual Meeting, state awards programs and the Stop-n-Shop at the State FFA Convention.
One goal of the Minnesota FFA Alumni Association is for there to be an Alumni FFA Chapter for every FFA chapter in Minnesota.
