Have you ever wondered why or how Farm Bureau decides to take a
position on an issue? It all begins with our local policy development process. As a Farm Bureau member, you can submit suggestions for local, state, or federal policies. The policies of Farm Bureau are the backbone of the organization. They provide the framework through which we advocate for family, community and food security. Those policies suggestions will be voted on at the annual meeting of members, and if passed, these policies are used to develop programs, projects and advocacy at the state and federal level, but just as importantly are used to help guide the yearly plan of work for Geauga County Farm Bureau volunteers. We encourage you to be part of this process! Strong policies can make a difference for your group, the members of Farm Bureau, and the quality of life in Geauga County.
Please submit your recommendations to our office at: 8220 State Route 45, Ste B, Orwell, OH 44076 or by email. An online submission form is available here. Paper copies of the form are available upon request.
If you have any questions, or need more information, contact the Farm Bureau office, or Mandy Orahood, Organization Director, at 440.426.2195.
