County Farm Bureau seeks trustees, volunteers

Ohio Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership organization working to support our state’s food and farm community. Farm Bureau is organized on three levels – local, state and national. The county (local) is the very heart and strength of the organization. It’s here where the members work together as volunteers in an effort to improve their profession. Seeking solutions to problems which affect their social and economic well-being is the reason they join our general farm organization. The county board of trustees represents the entire county membership.

Crawford County Farm Bureau is seeking candidates for trustees to be elected at the Annual Meeting Sept. 12. Trustees are asked to attend board meetings (~9 per year), serve on committees with other volunteers and help direct the work of the county Farm Bureau.

Locally there are 16 trustees on the board – 12 elected by district and four at-large. Active Members or Young Active Members, or their spouses, whose dues are paid, are eligible for the office of trustee. All trustees must live, work, or have an active farming interest in the county. All trustees elected by district must live, work, or have an active farming interest in said district.

District 1 – Tod, Texas, Holmes, Bucyrus, Dallas
District 2 – Lykens, Chatfield, Cranberry
District 3 – Auburn, Liberty, Sand, Vernon, Jefferson
District 4 – Whetstone, Polk, Jackson

If you are interested in making a difference in your community, planning activities, and organizing sessions to help local farmers, please let us know. Nominations will be accepted until Aug. 11.

If you can’t commit the time to be a trustee, we still have a spot for those willing to help! Volunteers are needed at different times throughout the year. You can volunteer for one particular event, participate in many areas or serve on committees. Contact the Crawford County farm Bureau at 800.327.6055 or [email protected] for more information on opportunities to volunteer.
