The Viewpoint Committee strives to keep members involved in the grassroots policy development process. Opportunities are provided for members to share their views and assist in developing state organizational policies. Volunteers develop program ideas, surface policy initiatives and organize meetings while helping to promote grassroots opportunities. Membership utilizes farm bureau resources and local ag supporters to enhance the policy development process so that our organization might accurately represent local opinion.
Projects and programs throughout the year include Member Surveys, Focus Groups, Policy Development Process Discussion, Annual Meeting Survey, Policy Resolution Updates, Farm Talks on Local Issues and State and Federal Policy.
The Viewpoint Committee meets on an as needed basis several times throughout the year.
