Chapter Management

Membership Roster

The National FFA Membership Roster is now available. Please be reminded that your first membership roster submission is due no later than October 8th. You may continue to add members throughout the year as they join. An email containing complete instructions for completing and submitting your roster was sent out on Monday, October 2nd. This email also contained step-by-step guides for each part of the process.  As a policy, this year your members will not be eligible to compete in CDE/LDE’s unless they are processed on your membership roster before they compete. 

Quality Chapter Plan

The 2017-2018 Quality Chapter Plan is now available.  The final deadline to complete the plan is October 8th.  Please note that you will need an electronic copy of your chapter’s constitution to submit the plan. To complete your Quality Chapter Plan visit:

FFA chapters must submit the Quality Chapter Plan prior to participating in any competitive event.  If the Quality Chapter Plan has not been submitted by the close of business on the published registration deadline, the chapter will not be considered for official ranking within that event.
