June 6, 9am–11amWhere
Prospect Room- County Building 222 West Center St, Marion, Ohio 43302
Please join us for a light breakfast and policy development meeting June 6 at 9 a.m. in the Prospect Room at the County Building located at 222 West Center Street, Marion.
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. They help guide efforts to address real community issues — 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.
As a community leader or an involved Farm Bureau member, you are asked to provide input on the issues and policies you think need attention in our community. You are asked, because as a leader, your experience and perspective is appreciated and valuable to the organization. This is not a debate but is instead a listening session for all reasonable thoughts and ideas to be heard and considered. Due to time constraints, all guests’ remarks will likely be limited to three to four minutes. If you are unable to attend, but have suggestions, please submit to the office by emailing [email protected] or calling the office at 800-327-6055 by June 8.
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.
In order to get an accurate count of guests, please RSVP by June 1 to [email protected] or call the office at 800-327-6055. We look forward to seeing you June 6.
