Without membership there is no Farm Bureau

—By Julie Volbers-Klarich

All across the state, county Farm Bureaus are engaging in activities that promote and advocate for agricultural and rural needs. All 92 counties are using the County Recognition Program booklet to help plan and organize.

As of Jan. 31, there had been 69 membership outreach activities, 175 issue engagement activities, 110 influential organization activities, 377 young farmer and youth activities, and 164 public relations and education activities. The grand cumulative total is 895! We appreciate your efforts.

Many counties will be focusing their efforts from Feb. 20-March 9 on membership as these are the dates for the annual membership blitz. What is your county Farm Bureau doing for this event? Home office employees are willing and able to assist with your membership events, so call us or have your regional manager contact us.

Did you realize that if your county participates in the blitz and your county recruits at least one young famer member then your county would have completed two of the activities in membership outreach? If every board member signs up at least one new member, that makes three activities.

Without membership in Farm Bureau, we have no Farm Bureau. Thank you for realizing the importance of your organization and know that all efforts toward membership will continue to have a life-long impact on agriculture.
