DEADLINE REMINDER: FFA Membership
Feb 27, 2019 by Erin Walker
It is time to complete all membership rosters and dues payments for the 2018-2019 school year. If you will recall, the membership process is a two-step process that began in October with the first submission of the Quality Chapter Plan. The next step in the process is to actually enter student names and addresses in the online membership roster. Please note that membership roster updates and submissions are due by March 8th-this includes chapters who chose Affiliate Membership.
While finalizing Online Preliminary testing, we have noticed that quiet a few of these students are not on their respective rosters. Reminder: It is unethical to collect dues money from students without ensuring their membership is current at all levels.
Earlier this year, Step 1 required that each FFA chapter complete the online submission of the Quality Chapter Plan, including the current number of FFA members. As a result, a membership dues invoice was immediately sent to each advisor that chose regular dues membership, based on that original first semester number.
Step 2 requires that actual student names, addresses, birthdates, race and gender be entered into the membership system (MyFFA) for each FFA chapter. Realizing that you will likely end up entering more students than you originally indicated on your Quality Chapter Plan, we will invoice your chapter for the ‘difference’ in what is owed versus what has already been paid. The important part is that we quickly get ALL FFA members entered into
Please remember, if you collected FFA Dues from a student, it is very important that their name be placed on your roster. Any student that has applied or will be applying for an award must be on your roster, including State and American FFA Degrees. It is unethical to collect dues money from students without ensuring their membership is current at all levels.
Note #1: Rosters must be submitted to STATE in order to be complete. If the membership Submission Level is listed as LOCAL beside a student name, the roster has not been submitted correctly.
Note #2: Both student and teacher profiles must be complete in order to submit roster. Rosters that contain profiles with missing data will receive an error message that prevents submission in MyFFA. Student profiles must contain address, birthdate, race and gender.
If you are unsure of the process, you may fill out the attached excel document with your student information and email back to Erin Walker and we will get your members processed.
*Gender, race, grade and address are required when filling out the excel document or adding membership to the system.*
March 1st (March 8th) is the Final membership deadline. We will begin invoicing Chapters for Membership on March 11, 2019.
