  • Our Board is Meeting the Future
    Members of Florida Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors have taken a bold step on behalf of our organization.

    In June they endorsed a new initiative to boost membership growth.

    This initiative includes hiring a professional membership development firm to assist with our recruitment. We expect that the firm will help develop tools that can be used by Farm Bureau leaders, county agents, members and our state staff.
