The packet has five discussion guides, giving councils options for topics to cover:

Many of Farm Bureau’s action plans started with conversation around a kitchen table, living room or front porch. Lively discussion continues to develop using web applications, too. Your participation as a community council member makes rue that our organization continues to focus on critical issues, create better policy helps people work together to get things done.
