The Georgia FFA Alumni Association is currently collecting rosters for the
2013/2014 membership year. If you are interested in organizing a new
affiliate then please contact Joy Crosby via [log in to unmask] so she
can provide you with the paperwork to complete. All rosters are updated
through the Ag Career Network set up by National FFA Alumni and rosters are
due to the GA FFA Alumni by Feb. 1, 2014. If you are not going to make the
deadline then donít fret just start working on items and try to get it in
as soon as you can.

Please keep in mind these few pointers as you begin updating rosters for
this year.

1. The alumni rosters are not the job of the Ag teacher. Alumni officers
should complete the roster for their local affiliate and not expect the ag
teacher to do.

2. All administrators for your specific affiliate still have access for
this year. If you have forgotten your password then select "reset password"
to update it for this year. The state does not know your password and will
guide you to reset it on the website if you contact us.

3. Dues and payment should *NOT* be sent to National FFA Alumni. All
correspondence regarding local rosters should be handled on the state level
by contacting Joy Crosby or your GA FFA Alumni Area Director. The area
directors are listed on the GA FFA Alumni website.

Payment should be sent directly to GA FFA Alumni, Stan Mitchell, 201 Four
Towers, UGA, Athens, GA 30602.  Any paperwork for new affiliates should be
sent to Joy Crosby, 4101 London Lane, Tifton, GA 31793 or
[log in to unmask]



4. Dues are $5.00 for state and $10 for national for annual members.
Associate membership is free. Collegiate membership is $5 for national and
free for Georgia. Life membership is $150 plus a $10 processing fee charged
by National FFA Alumni. A local affiliate can add local dues to any of the
membership types mentioned above.

5. Once you renew your members online and submit your roster to the state
you *MUST* send an email to Joy Crosby at [log in to unmask] letting her
know that you have submitted your roster. Do *NOT* send payment or mail
anything until you have heard back from Joy that your roster has been
processed correctly. Reason being is that we continue to have rosters
submitted incorrectly and then we have to request additional funds or
refund portions of the dues where affiliates have overpaid. *Please wait
until you have received your confirmed total from Joy before mailing a
check. Joy will send you an invoice if need be.*



6. As the FFA Alumni moves forward with processing rosters through the Ag
Career Network then it would be a good idea to invite your local FFA Alumni
members to join the network and establish their profile. Once you renew an
individual then you can print an invitation to send to the member via email
or print out a copy of the invite and hand it to them at the next alumni
meeting.



7. Current FFA members can be advanced from the student roster to the
Alumni roster so that they can become associate OR dues paying members.
This reduces duplicate records in the system for the same person. Hereís a
web link with instructions for doing this:

8. National FFA Alumni has created several video tutorials on their website
regarding the process to update FFA Alumni rosters through the Ag Career
Network. They will also provide webinar trainings on the roster coming soon
so stay tuned for more info.
