Farm Bureau Fest: Membership Kick-Off and Benefit Expo

Join Farm Bureau at Tri Rivers Career Center in Marion, Feb. 6 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a morning of development, networking, demonstrations, fun and more. Bring the whole family and find out what your membership is really worth. Bring a NEW member and you both receive a special gift. Lunch is included and the event is free.

This day features several personal development opportunities:

Safety training sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. with an update on OBWC from our CompManagement team. Attend at least one safety session to meet your Workers’ Compensation Group Rating requirement for the year.

Membership sessions at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. with discussion about membership benefits and services available from Ohio Farm Bureau to members and the membership structure for Farm Bureau.

Other public policy sessions led by Ohio Farm Bureau staff include a water quality update at 8:30 a.m., Current Agricultural Use Value and 2016 priority issues at 9 a.m., and energy issues and pipeline construction update at noon.

A Nationwide Insurance Land as Your Legacy seminar at 10:30 a.m. will offer direction as you consider generational transition planning for your farming operation. The session will repeat at noon depending on interest.

When not in training, visit our partners – such as Case IH, Grainger, Nationwide Agribusiness, GM, Sherwin Williams and more – and learn about the savings opportunities your membership affords you and your family. County Farm Bureau activities will be on display too, highlighting the great work each does and illustrating how your membership helps build a better community.

There will be supervised children’s activities, featuring a puppet show, ag activities and a live animal presentation from the Columbus Zoo.

Bring the whole family and attend the development sessions while your kids have fun learning about animals, food and farming. A soup and salad lunch will also be served.

Registration is required for all attendees. RSVP by Jan. 29. Attendance at a membership session is required to receive a lunch ticket. Register online or call Marion County Farm Bureau at 740-251-9513.
