Farm Bureau farmer and rancher members play an important role in their communities and the organization by serving at the local, state, and national levels. Several newly appointed volunteers will provide leadership beginning in 2024 as members of the AFB’s Young Farmers and Ranchers and Promotion and Education Committees.
“These newly appointed national committee members will focus on advancing the mission of the American Farm Bureau and working to build trust with consumers and others while sharing agriculture’s story,” says American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. “Farm Bureau members bring a big level of commitment and care to their communities, and as engaged grassroots leaders, they’ll have a big impact.”
The YF and R Committee plans programming that includes coordinating the Young Farmer and Rancher competitive events at the national convention in January. The Promotion and Education Committee develops resources to inspire and equip the Farm Bureau to convey agriculture’s importance.
