State Resolutions Meeting underway in Boise
Resolution Meeting convenes in Boise
Boise--Idaho Farm Bureau Vice President Mark Trupp called the State Resolution Meeting to order just after 9:30 this morning at the Farm Bureau headquarters in Boise.
Representatives from the five state districts attended the meeting along with field staff and Executive Vice President Rick Keller.
The resolutions approved at the IFB Annual Meeting are the result of a year-long grassroot effort, involving input from every county in Idaho.
The center piece of the Idaho Farm Bureau's annual meeting in December is the delegate resolution process. Those policy resolutions adopted by voting delegates will become IFB's 2013 policy roadmap for agriculture advocacy, city councils, county commissions, the state legislature and the U.S. Congress.
Idaho Farm Bureau has represented grassroots agriculture since establishment in 1939, this non-profit advocacy organization supports farm families who earn their living on the farm.
