Contact Your Local Alumni Leader

If you chose an Annual membership and are not prompted to pay, the alumni chapter you selected is participating in the affiliation program, in which individual dues are not collected. Your membership request must be approved by your local alumni leader. After submitting your request, contact your local alumni leader and ask him/her to approve your membership. This is common, as more than 90% of alumni chapters participate in the affiliation program.

Pay Using PayPal (If Prompted)

If you chose a Life (Lifetime) membership, you will be prompted to pay national and state (if applicable) life dues.

If you chose an Annual membership and are prompted to pay, the alumni chapter you selected is not participating in the affiliation program. Therefore, national and state (if applicable) annual dues will be collected. This is not common, as more than 90% of alumni chapters participate in the affiliation program.

If prompted, scroll to the bottom and click Pay. You will be redirected to PayPal.

Log in to your PayPal account or use PayPal Guest Checkout to submit your payment. After your PayPal payment has processed, you will be sent back to FFA.org and your membership will automatically be approved at all levels (i.e., local, state and national).

The amount due may include both national and state (if applicable) dues and will vary based on membership type (i.e., Annual or Life) and state.
