Once your chapter submits registration, you may create an account with the National FFA and update your information, apply for scholarships, complete your State/American degree, and much more. You are not required to do so unless you plan to apply for your State degree. All seniors applying for State degrees must create this account in order to access their applications. Seniors, please make contact with me by the end of January of graduation year to get your membership number and get started on your State degree. I will provide you a support system as you apply for your degree to help guide you through the process. However, you must take the initiative and work hard on the application process. After graduation, you must also take the initiative to seek out your American degree. Again I will help guide you, but it is your responsibility to initiate and maintain. All applications are accessed in the "dashboard" of your account.
Note: All American degree applicants who plan to attend National Convention to receive their degree will receive notification for registration via both email and physical mail. It is your responsibility to register yourself, find lodging, and make any corrections to your name on the degree as I will not receive any of these notifications. If you find yourself struggling with the process contact me for help. If you want to lodge with the VA FFA Association you must make contact with me by July of the year you will receive your degree, and you must pay up front for your lodging. You are more than welcome to seek out lodging on your own.
Use the form below to fill out for an officer application if you are interested in being a chapter officer with our organization. All are welcome to apply who have served as a member this past year. We will definitely need at least 3 slots to be filled due to graduating seniors.
FFA members may qualify for their greenhand or chapter degree. If you are a first time member or you have not yet received a degree in FFA you are applying for your greenhand. If you have received your greenhand and are still a member you are applying for you chapter degree. Please fill out the form below to apply.
