Registration Open for 2023 American Farm Bureau Convention

Mon, 03 Oct 2022 10:11:36 CDT

Registration Open for 2023 American Farm Bureau Convention The American Farm Bureau Federation announced the opening of general registration today for the 2023 American Farm Bureau Convention. The convention will be held in-person Jan. 6-11, 2023, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. AFBF assessed the status of San Juan and the convention facilities following Hurricane Fiona and determined that all are fully operational.

“Mi Familia” (My Family) is the theme of AFBF’s 104th consecutive convention, a “must attend” event that offers attendees the inside track on policies and perspectives that will affect farms, ranches and agribusinesses in 2023 and beyond.

“This is your opportunity to gain insights about the future of agriculture, sharpen your skills and help define the agenda in Washington,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “I look forward to seeing you in January in Puerto Rico as the Farm Bureau family gathers together at the start of another year of feeding, clothing and fueling our great nation.”

Attendees may participate in a variety of educational workshops to advance their leadership skills, expand business proficiency and gain insights from industry visionaries about food production-related policies and trends. The convention also offers the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge innovations in agriculture, hear from powerful speakers and explore a vibrant trade show with exhibitors showcasing the latest in agricultural technology, tools and services.
Workshop topics include the 2023 farm bill, policy updates, market outlooks, trade, the latest ag education resources and strategies for coping with farm stress.

More than 50% of the land in Puerto Rico is used for agriculture. An exciting aspect of this convention is the opportunity for farmers and ranchers from the 50 states to see and learn about crops and agricultural practices unique to Puerto Rico. Information about ag and leisure tours of Puerto Rico is available on the convention website. Details about additional tours will be posted when available.
