Farm Bureau model discussed by members

The panel was initiated by delegate action at the 2013 OFBF annual meeting and asked to define a membership structure that leads to growth and viability for the organization.

Key themes in the discussion thus far include the importance of strong county, state and national organizations, keeping membership authority at the county level, becoming more inclusive and providing value back to partnering organizations.

Study group participants also want to lead the effort in communicating about this topic with all members. That process is expected to begin in early summer.
