The Wisconsin Association of FFA is comprised of over 19,180 members and 255 chapters. Local FFA chapters are governed by the local FFA chapter advisor and chapter officers. A local FFA chapter advisor is a licensed agricultural education instructor hired by the local school district. The local chapter is part of the public school system in the community and directly tied to the Agricultural Education classroom instruction. An FFA chapter cannot exist in a school or community without a licensed agricultural education instructor and an agricultural education program providing classroom instruction in agriculture at the secondary level.
