AFBF 100th Annual Convention
Dear Maryland Farm Bureau Friends:
I hope you will join us in New Orleans this January for the 100th Annual Meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation. This centennial celebration is an opportunity to meet farmers from around the country, participate in worthwhile workshops, hear some great speakers and debate issues that are will impact our ability to farm far into the future. Registration opens on October 1st . Book early to get the best ag tour options!
The Maryland Farm Bureau group usually numbers around 60 for the national conference. This includes Young Farmers who compete in competitions, Women’s Leadership representatives, our two Voting Delegates and many other farm couples who enjoy the fellowship of traveling with friends.
The travel package we are offering allows you to specifically customize your trip. The only required charges are for hotel, convention registration and the Maryland group dinner. You can also purchase tickets for ag tours, the leadership luncheon or one of the fundraising events to support the AFBF Foundation for Agriculture. These include the Foundation Night Out and the flapjack breakfast. You can purchase your airfare directly from your airline of choice and charge it right onto your credit card. This way you can build travel points and make changes as needed. We suggest traveling to New Orleans on Friday morning and home on Tuesday, but that’s just a suggestion. We look forward to your company for as long as you can join us in the Big Easy – New Orleans!
Chuck Fry, MFB President
