About Speak Out
The council program underwent a change in January 2013. Rather than receiving a council discussion guide in the mail each month, councils now use this Discussion Guide Workbook.
Community councils can play an important role in making plans for their community and involving others in sharing the issues, challenges and solutions for community improvement.
In what ways does your county Farm Bureau currently work to improve the local community?
Have each council member complete this statement: Our community would be an even better place to live if:
After you consider community needs, identify one practical thing your council could do to affect change in your community.
List groups or individuals you could partner with to carry out your plan.
List the action steps your council will take to put your idea into action.
If you would like to participate in a community council, contact your local Farm Bureau office.
