On March 8-9, 2019 the Wisconsin Farm Bureau will host a new agricultural promotion and education summit in Appleton.
The Ag LEAD Summit will give attendees the opportunity to learn more about tools, resources, ideas and best practices when advocating for agriculture and conducting promotional events.
The summit is being coordinated by WFBF’s Promotion and Education Committee whose mission is to build awareness and understanding of agriculture and provide leadership development for the agricultural community.
“The Ag LEAD Summit is the first event of its kind hosted by our committee,” WFBF Promotion and Education Committee chair Andrea Brossard said. “This event will be open to Farm Bureau members and non-members alike. We want everyone to come together with the common goal of effectively engaging with consumers.”
The conference will be broken into four tracks: Leading Your Own Self Development, Engaging Consumers, Advocating for Agriculture and Developing Agribusinesses.
Registration for this event is open to current Farm Bureau members and non-members. Registration information, hotel accommodations and a tentative agenda for the conference will be available in November.
Rural Mutual Insurance Company is a co-sponsor of the Ag LEAD Summit. The summit is scheduled to take place on a biennial basis.
Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is the state’s largest general farm organization representing farms of all sizes, commodities and management styles. For more information on the event or WFBF, visit https://wfbf.com/
