On Wednesday, Jan. 18, Erie County Farm Bureau kicked off its 2012 membership campaign by hosting a dinner at Margaretta High School Agricultural Building where more than 40 people met to discuss the campaign and goals for the year. Discussion included upcoming campaign check-in dates, county awards and Ohio Farm Bureau Federation awards, distribution of worker folders and what information is included, discussion of membership numbers, and an explanation of the Erie, Huron & Lorain county member benefits brochure. Campaign workers were also informed of the benefits of meeting with prospective members and prospect lists were distributed to workers.
Goals discussed for this year include attaining farmer gain by March 30, urging businesses to join and advertise in the tri-county member benefits brochure, encouraging businesses to purchase group buys, involving the Margaretta FFA in the campaign, urging board members to sign one new or three renewal members and involving Nationwide agents in the campaign.
If you are interested in helping with the membership campaign or would like more information please contact the Erie County Farm Bureau office at 888-216-5487 or [email protected].
