OKFB Wraps up 2022 August Area Meetings, Grassroots Policy Development Process Moves Forward

Mon, 29 Aug 2022 04:29:25 CDT

OKFB Wraps up 2022 August Area Meetings, Grassroots Policy Development Process Moves Forward Another year of August Area Meetings has come to a close. Farm Bureau members from every corner of the state gathered for a total of 11 districtwide meetings during the weeks of August 8 and August 15.

August Area Meetings serve as the beginning of Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s grassroots policy development season where members bring forth top issues facing farmers and ranchers. Members who attended the 2022 meetings discussed a variety of topics, including medical marijuana, private property rights, agriculture labor, school vouchers, climate issues, the 2023 farm bill and more.

Members will now take what they discussed to their county resolutions meetings in the coming weeks to draft resolution language to be considered at the state resolutions meeting in mid-October. Resolutions from the state meeting will be heard and voted on at OKFB’s annual meeting in November. These resolutions will guide the work of the organization in the upcoming year.

Resolutions committee assignments

A total of 25 counties (listed below) will serve on the Oklahoma Farm Bureau state resolutions committee, which reviews and approves county-submitted policy resolutions before the proposals are considered by the delegate body at the OKFB annual meeting.

The OKFB state resolutions committee meeting will be held Tuesday, Oct. 18 and Wednesday, Oct. 19 in Oklahoma City. For questions about the resolutions process or the state resolutions meeting, please contact the OKFB public policy department at (405) 523-2300.
