1.  AET Helpful Hints from Dr. Roger Hanagriff, AET

  • On all FFA awards that are locked to AET (state degree and even national level awards), the idea of knowing which ones are locked has come up in years past, so we added a "lock" symbol to the bottom of the PDF by the version #:

  • Also, we added the supporting records into your state degree and prof. apps, so seeing that in the PDF will also be a clue...of course we added that late, so they may have printed their apps before then.  
  • On closing the year for records, really there are a few steps that are important to close the year.  To help, I am going to forward to you my year-end closing Tuesday Tips email that I sent, but the following is a summary:


1. Review SAE planning, records and annual review -

2. Non-current items usage (Entr. only) -

3. Active or inactive SAEs -

4. Annual SAE value guide  - 


The coming email maybe the best one to forward and encourage those that are not getting the Tuesday tips to check with us on their email or signup at our special invite page -
