Summer Presidents Meeting
Idaho Farm Bureau County Presidents Gather
Grand Targhee--The 74th Annual Summer Presidents meeting is underway at Grand Targhee resort. 36 county presidents and families gathered to discuss everything from legislative updates and policy development.
"We're at an all time attendance high this year, but what we do is go over Farm Bureau issues both on state and federal level. This is a pre-resolution meeting and we'll discuss issues on the horizon. We will also discuss training of the Presidents, things like budgets and planning and how to make their counties better.
Every summer for more than 30 years Priestley has attended the Summer meeting.
"This is a family affair, Presidents can bring their families and for me we considered this an annual get away, our family and our extended family. The kids love it, if we wouldn't have had this meeting my kids would never have a vacation."
