Professional organizations in Korea and U.S.

We had the opportunity to visit the headquarters of the FFK (Future Farmers of Korea) and the KAEA (Korea Agriculture Education Association). There were similaraties and differences between the United States Counterparts (FFA and NAAE).

One major difference that I noticed was that their organizations got alot more government funding than the united states organizations. Most of our organizations rely on their own funds, but the KAEA gets alot of support from the government.

Another difference between the NAAE and the KAEA is that most of the agriculture teachers (almost 100%) in Korea belong to the KAEA, while the NAAE does not have as high of a percentage of membership. Something that is similar in the organizations is the the members pay dues and attend professional meetings.
