OKFB sets 2024 August Area Meetings to kick off grassroots policy development

Oklahoma Farm Bureau will kick of its 2024 grassroots policy development season with the organization’s annual August Area Meetings, which will be held across the state throughout the month.

Eleven meetings will be held across the nine OKFB districts for OKFB members to discuss the issues, challenges and opportunities facing farmers, ranchers, the agricultural industry and rural Oklahoma. 

The discussions will serve as a springboard for OKFB members to create and draft resolutions to update the organization’s policy positions. The resolutions will be considered through OKFB’s grassroots policy development process beginning at the county Farm Bureau level.

The meetings also provide an opportunity for OKFB members to learn about the wide-ranging work of the state’s largest general farm organizations, including updates on programs from the Women’s Leadership Committee to the Young Farmers and Ranchers and from rural development initiatives to organizational outreach programs.

Each meeting will begin at 6 p.m., and a meal will be provided.
