The American Farm Bureau Federation is now accepting applications for its 11th Women’s Communication Boot Camp class, to be held Oct. 24-27 in Washington, D.C.
The three-day intensive training is open to all women who are Farm Bureau members. The training offers sessions on public speaking, testifying, targeting your message and working with the media.
Sherry Saylor, an Arizona row crop farmer and chair of the AFB Women’s Leadership Committee, is enthusiastic about the benefits of the program.
“We’re pleased to offer a select class of Farm Bureau women an experience of a lifetime through Women’s Communication Boot Camp,” Saylor said. “Graduates of this program are empowered, passionate and persuasive, lending their voices to effectively advocate and connect with influencers at the local, state and national levels.”
Fifteen women will be selected to participate in this year’s program, which is sponsored by the AFBWLC. Applications are available online or through state Farm Bureaus. The deadline for submissions is June 15. All applicants will be notified of their status by July 15.
The American Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Program provides women with the training and education they need to encourage positive change in their communities and within agriculture. For more information, visit AFBF’s website.
