2021 Membership Campaign

Membership Update for March 12, 2021

The weather has been great the last few days. The snow is gone, and I can see a few signs of spring. This time of year also marks the end of our annual volunteer membership campaign. We will complete that on March 31, 2021, and our final target report for the campaign will be April 2, 2021. I know counties are working diligently to make those final phone calls, texts and socially distanced visits to prospective members. Thank you for your help during this year’s membership campaign; you are a very important part of growing the organization.

As of today we have 63,548 paid active members and continue to track toward our goal.

Congratulations to Hamilton County Membership Coordinator Lou Schindler and his team for achieving the Explorer and the Trailblazer Awards this past week for 3% and 6% active member gain.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
