County Activities of Excellence Awards application now available
by Callie Wells
Applications are available for county Farm Bureaus to enter American Farm Bureauís County Activities of Excellence Awards (CAE) program.
With a focus on Farm Bureauís priority issues, the CAE program groups county activities into the following areas: Education and Ag Promotion, Member Services, Public Relations and Information, Leadership Development and Policy Implementation. CAE recognizes up to 25 successful county Farm Bureau programs from across the nation.
Winning counties will be announced Oct.11 and will present displays about their activities at the 2014 American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) annual meeting trade show in San Antonio Jan. 12-13. They also will receive $2,250 toward expenses incurred through participation in the CAE program at the annual meeting.
A brief application that asks for a summary of the program, the program's goals, how the program was executed and results must be received at Ohio Farm Bureauís office no later than Aug. 30. Applications can be downloaded from the AFBF website.
ďOhio has many county Farm Bureau activities worthy of this award. We hope that county leaders will fill out the simple application to showcase the work of volunteers in their county and across Ohio,Ē said Scott Donaldson, Ohio Farm Bureau director of volunteer and member engagement.
