The American Farm Bureau Federation is the nation’s largest general farm organization. More than 6.1 million American families are members of Farm Bureau in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Each January, thousands of those members get together to conduct the business of the national organization, benefit from informative sessions on agricultural and rural issues and share camaraderie with their fellow farmers and ranchers. At the annual meeting of Farm Bureau voting delegates, our leaders set the national organization’s policies for the next year. These policies—surfaced and debated from the grassroots level on up—guide our national policy implementation efforts throughout the following year.
The 95th Annual Convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation, Jan. 12-15, 2014, will take place in San Antonio, Texas. Our Heritage, Our Future” is a fitting theme for this convention, as attendees will both reflect on the past and look forward to the future while there. This is the 95th time farmers and ranchers from across the nation will gather together as Farm Bureau members for educational and networking opportunities. Also during this meeting, delegates will elect leaders and participate in a grassroots policy-setting process that will guide AFBF through the coming year.
