Kacy Hummel of Franklin County Farm Bureau, recently attended the YAP 2023 Washington D.C. Leadership Experience.
“I had the opportunity to attend the Young Ag Professionals 2023 Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience on Capitol Hill as a Franklin County Farm Bureau member. We met with legislators and talked about the farm bill and had a chance to meet with leaders within the British Embassy to further explain our network and build upon connections with the agricultural community,” she said.
“It was a great experience to grow personally and professionally, and I was able to learn more on how to get involved with Farm Bureau following the trip. Gaining different perspectives from my fellow ag advocates as well as legislators was an eye-opening experience that I hope other young ag professional members will take advantage of someday because your voice matters!”
Thank you Kacy for your involvement with Farm Bureau, and helping advocate for agriculture!
