FBF Women's Leadership Committee Meets at Summer Presidents Meeting

Burley—Women’s Leadership Chairman Judy Woody of Filer is in her second day of Board meeting at the Summer Presidents Meeting in Burley. It is hard to catch the chairman because she's been on a dead run since early Monday.

Yesterday it was leadership training for the board, today their task is to plan the group’s activities over the next 12 months.

“This is actually our yearly planning meeting and we address all our activities for the next year. We go through our programs award book and this is the time of year we get all that done. It takes about a day and half for our meeting, it’s a thorough meeting thats for sure,” said Woody.

The groups leadership training with Justin Patten helped the Committee surface group priorities moving forward.

“It really gave them an idea of what they want do this next year. Looking ahead and the evaluation of our programs is important and they’re dynamic and always coming up with new ideas,” said Patten.

Leadership for the group is more than a title and it only tells a fraction of what the group is all about.

“Women in agriculture have been involved since day one,” said Woody. “ Whether its inside the house, the company books, or the fields its takes both people, doesn’t make a difference if it’s a man or a woman,” said Woody.

Chairman Woody says leadership is passed on from generation to generation and everything they do now and all that they achieve can be passed down as new leaders emerge. She adds that’s the reason each meeting is important.
