The National FFA Organization estimates that anywhere from 7- to 9-million former members have lost touch and know virtually nothing about today’s FFA experience. A program called CONNECT! has been launched and according to National FFA Foundation Executive Director Rob Cooper, we’re looking to re-engage former members, encourage them to connect back with us and help FFA through their advocacy, volunteerism, financial support and more.
Through CONNECT! , FFA leaders hope to communicate the importance of FFA to current and former members and supporters of the organization, increase awareness of FFA and share the organization’s impact on students and the agricultural industry.
The campaign invites people who have been involved with FFA, or anyone who is interested in the organization, to visit the Connect! Campaign website at www/connectffa.org. Those looking to connect with FFA can also do so by calling 888-433-2674. The campaign runs through Dec. 30.
