BISMARCK, N.D. — November 12 marks the day 100 years ago of the founding of American Farm Bureau Federation. The largest farm organization. The largest advocacy group on the behalf of all agriculture. And NDFB has been a part of that affiliation over three-fourths of that time.
Next week, we will have our 77th Annual Meeting at the Holiday Inn in Fargo. Delegates from across the state, counties from east to west to north to south, will come and debate policy. It will be a rigorous and vigorous debate to set the forward path for the following year of the policies that we advocate not only here in the state but also on the federal level.
That’s why it is such a great opportunity to be a part of the largest ag network, the American Farm Bureau Federation. Over six million members strong, there is not another farm organization that even comes close to the clout we have when it comes to policies decisions in our nation’s capital, and right here in our state and in our local communities.
It’s our great local leaders – our membership – that gives us the clout, that gives us the advantage of having the boots on the ground, to get the policies implemented. Whether it’s at your local schools, at your townships, your cities, your counties, the state, or the federal level, Farm Bureau, NDFB and AFBF together, advocate for the policies to make sure that the number one, and most noble profession farming and ranching is enhanced and protected not only in our great nation, but in our great state.
So, join us November 22 and 23 at the Holiday Inn in Fargo to see what NDFB is all about and what we advocate for. More importantly, how our grassroots policy process really works.
