Alabama FFA Membership
Local FFA Chapter Advisors in Alabama complete their chapter's membership report utilizing the National FFA Organization's Web site (www.ffa.org). You can access the national Web site as a local FFA advisor by contacting the Montgomery Office and establishing your account as a chapter advisor or transfering your account to another chapter. The goal of the national Web site is to allow students to have control of their own information and membership. Please read the guide in the Membership Documents section below to acclimate yourself to this process. Once you submit your roster to the local and then state, you will complete an invoice (see below for invoice), please do not pay using the online invoice generated through the national Web site.
