The governmental affairs committee is designed to keep local FB members abreast of the developments in local, state and federal government. The committee also strives to build a positive working relationship with elected officials and to provide them with an overview of our organization's policies. Keeping an open line of communication with elected officials includes regular contact at monthly meetings, weekly updates to state leaders, and a working friendship which benefits all.
Activities include county board members campaign, potential gubernatorial candidate, candidate focus groups, Sprinfield lobbying efforts, a legislative reception to show our appreciation for our state legislators, county-wide elected officials and county board, FB ACT Training, compiling and publishing the contact information of locally elected public officials such as members of the County Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, State General Assembly and Federal Legislature, adopted Legislator visit, harvest visits and combine rides for state legislators, breakfast with U.S. Representative, civic engagement discussion, and a Congressional Farm Bill.
The Governmental Affairs Committee meets the Tuesday before the third Thursday of the month. All Farm Bureau members are welcome to attend. Meetings begin at 7:30 a.m in the CCFB Auditorium.
