Alabama FFA Membership

Local FFA Chapter Advisors in Alabama complete their chapter's membership report utilizing the National FFA Organization's Agricultural Career Network (AgCN). You can access the AgCN by going to www.ffa.org and clicking on the "RED" button for MyAgCN. The goal of the AgCN is to allow students to have control of their own information and membership. Please read the guides in the Membership Documents section below to aclimate yourself to this process. Once you submit your roster to the local and then state, you will complete an invoice (see below), please do not pay using the online invoice generated through the AgCN.
