FFA Membership Dues

Membership dues for the National FFA Organization are $7 each year. Of this total cost, $2.50 goes to the publication and distribution of FFA New Horizons, the FFA member magazine. A subscription to the magazine is included in your membership fee.

Your state and local FFA associations may charge additional dues for membership. These charges would be in addition to the $7 national dues, so your actual cost of membership may be more than $7

With your FFA membership, you receive six issues of FFA New Horizons, the organization's member magazine. With entertaining and informative feature articles on everything from famous athletes to career spotlights to important FFA News, the award-winning FFA New Horizons is a cool benefit for members.
