With the increased diversity of agricultural education programs, it is becoming more difficult for advisors/teachers to keep up with all the additional activities.  Former FFA members and interested adults are a natural resource of help and support.  An FFA Alumni Affiliate can unify the local community to support agricultural education and FFA activities and provide valuable assistance to agriculture advisors.
