Please join us for breakfast and a policy development meeting at 7 a.m. Wednesday, March 27, at Ag Credit, in the Community Room, located at 5362 US 42, Mount Gilead.
Your experience and perspective are appreciated and valuable to the organization. Please be prepared to share concerns and issues that impact you and how Farm Bureau can work on them through local, state or national policies.
The policies of the Farm Bureau are the backbone of the organization. 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 Morrow County Farm Bureau volunteers. They provide the framework through which we advocate for family, community and food security. They help guide efforts to address real community issues such as regulations, funding public education and services, environmental protection, animal care, health care, landowner’s rights and community planning.
If you are unable to attend but have suggestions, please submit them here or by emailing [email protected]. Following this input session, the Farm Bureau policy development committee will provide policy resolutions to the membership at our annual meeting. Those approved will go on to the Ohio Farm Bureau, and they may move on to the American Farm Bureau Federation.
