Important Notice about Invoices and Refunds

Information from National FFA; March 1, 2012.

Advisors are encouraged to please work with their state FFA office in to properly handle invoices and refunds. National FFA invoices all state FFA offices for all members (M, T, and F) that have been approved at the state level for submission to the national level. With the new AgCN system its been observed that there have been some errors, especially in what is pushed forward as 'T' and 'F' type members. If an error has been made, it can be corrected but it is important that the local chapter pays the state for the original submission and then receives a refund for the error.

  • For example, Johnny Greenhand was submitted to the state office and then on to the national level as a type 'F' member but he is actually a regular 'M' member. The local chapter will be billed for $45.50. The local chapter needs to pay this and notify the state office that Johnny is actually a type 'M' member. The state office will have the national level change his membership type and then will issue a refund for the difference of $29.50 to the local chapter.

The total for the original invoice must be paid and then a refund is granted to finalize the membership process. Please contact Tammy Ackerland with questions; 208-334-3216.

Important Information Concerning Missing Membership
