Policy development is one of the most important activities that the Marion County Farm Bureau conducts each year. 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 issues. 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. 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 Marion County Farm Bureau volunteers. Throughout the program year, our “action projects” will be based on these policies. This is a process that truly represents democracy in action.
Please join Marion County Farm Bureau for its annual Policy Development Meeting Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 222 West Center St. in the Prospect Room, beginning at 9 a.m. There will be a light breakfast provided.
Your input is vital to the success of this program. We would like for you to offer one or two issues that you feel that Farm Bureau should work on this year. You may suggest ideas that you have thought of through your work or from personal experiences. Please write down your ideas and be prepared to share them with the group on June 7.
