What are These County Annual Meetings All About?

and Why you should Attend

They are perhaps the most important occasions in our organization, to develop, discuss, and set county policies for the coming year. The policy development process involves every member and any problem, opportunity, or solution the members wish to include. County policies get thoroughly discussed at the meetings, and if passed, move to the State Annual Meeting in November. Elected delegates from each of the 14 county Farm Bureaus spend a long day looking at the proposals, and if passed by the group, they become part of the state policy book. Suggestions are made by the delegates as to the legislative priorities for the coming session, and voted on by the board.


Homemade pies are another reason to attend
