House of Delegates in Session, Annual Meeting News

House of Delegates Opens at Red Lion Downtowner

Boise--The Idaho Farm Bureau's House of Delegates opened this morning at Red Lion Downtowner.

The policies and programs of Farm Bureau are developed from grassroots recommendations originating at the community and county Farm Bureau levels. From these recommendations, tentative policy resolutions are prepared and submitted to the IFBF House of Delegates for action at its annual meeting each December.

The House of Delegates is made up of representatives elected by members of the county Farm Bureaus. Resolutions on state matters become IFBF policy. Matters of national interest are forwarded to the American Farm Bureau Federation for consideration.
