RE: Farm Bureau Day Events –Legislative Update  

This memo announces the dates, times and locations of PFB’s regional “Farm Bureau Day” events during the month of March. The meetings will include our annual Legislative Update Sessions when PFB’s Specialist of State & Local Government Affairs, Lily Guthrie, and Specialist of Federal Government Affairs, Bailey Thumm, will outline PFB’s state and national legislative agendas. These meetings are in preparation for the State Legislative Conference in Harrisburg (April 4, 2023) and for national legislative contacts to be made by County Farm Bureau Legislative Committees in district offices and PFB organized visits in Washington DC during the first half of 2023.

PFB’s Member Relations Division and Regional Organization Directors will soon provide you a full agenda of the Farm Bureau Day event in your region (and nearby regions).  Legislative Committee members in Region 7 and anyone else who is unable to attend Regional Farm Bureau Days should plan to attend the virtual Legislative Update Meeting being held via Zoom on the evening of March 15, 2023.  More details on that to follow.
