Idaho Farm Bureau Launches New Website
POCATELLO - The Idaho Farm Bureau Federation introduced a new website this week directed at better serving its 76,000 member families, and informing the general public about agriculture, natural resources and the organization’s grassroots policy.
Joel Benson, Idaho Farm Bureau’s manager of member benefits and digital marketing, said the new site will be more nimble and responsive to the needs of the membership.
“The new website at www.idahofb.org, utilizes responsive design, which means it’s clear and legible for all devices on any size screen,” Benson said. “As technology changes and improves over time it will adjust for the future needs of the organization.”
The new site includes a digital newsroom and will be updated daily (five days per week) to provide the most recent news and information including video and print news, photographs, blog posts and social media links.
Regarding advocacy, the site includes a new page that will help members stay informed on critical issues and provide several tools to encourage interaction with local, state and federal agencies and politicians.
In the member services category, the new website is a clearinghouse for the numerous programs provided to Farm Bureau members as well as an organization event calendar and pre-registration page for important meetings, conferences and seminars.
The new site was designed by Manwaring Web, an Idaho Falls firm and will be maintained and updated by Idaho Farm Bureau staff.
