Delegates to decide Farm Bureau policy on August 24
Media representatives are invited to attend Indiana Farm Bureau’s annual delegate session, during which delegates from across the state will gather in Indianapolis to vote on the policy that will guide the state’s largest farm organization for the next year.
The annual delegate session will be held on Aug. 24 beginning at 9 a.m. and concluding by 5 p.m. It will be held at the Wyndham Hotel (formerly the Adams Mark) near the old Indianapolis airport.
Voting delegates from every county in Indiana will discuss and vote on policy recommendations from county Farm Bureaus and the state resolutions committee.
Topics the delegates are likely to discuss include property taxes, local government reorganization, regulatory reform, livestock agriculture and other farm policy issues.
A special seating area with tables will be reserved for media, and an audio multbox will be available for radio and TV reporters.
Lunch will be offered to media representatives who attend, but reservations are required so that IFB can turn in an accurate lunch count. Therefore, if you plan to attend, please call or email PR administrative assistant Charla Buis by noon on Friday, Aug. 23. Her phone number is (317) 692-7819; her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
