The Governor will be giving his State of the State address during Day in Annapolis at 12:00 PM. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with their representatives over breakfast this year instead of lunch.
On Wednesday, January 30, 2019, the Young Farmers and the Women’s Committee will jointly sponsor our annual Day in Annapolis. This day of briefings and lobbying will give you the opportunity to weigh-in on important issues that may impact your farm for years to come.
The Day in Annapolis is planned to bring you to the State House at a very critical time during the 90-day session – a time when Committees are beginning to make decisions on pending bills.
The day will begin with a short legislative briefing by the Maryland Farm Bureau Government Relations staff, followed by a hot breakfast at the Calvert House that will bring together farmers and legislators from across the state as all legislators will be invited to attend. With only a couple of farmer legislators in the General Assembly, we need now, more than ever, to educate our representatives on the value of agriculture to this state. This is a great opportunity to talk to the Senators and Delegates from your area and to help folks from the city districts better understand your farming business. With so many new faces and so many significant issues facing our industry, your attendance this year is very important!
Please join us for a very valuable day in our state capital. Our goal is to have representation from every county. You must register by January 22, 2019. Click here to download the registration form.
We look forward to seeing you in Annapolis on January 30, 2019!
