DEADLINE APPROACHING: Women's Communications Boot Camp

Women’s Communications Boot Camp is an intensive training opportunity for any female Farm Bureau member interested in building skills needed to communicate about agriculture and for Farm Bureau. To date, 180 women have graduated from the program, including several from Utah. These skilled alumni provide Farm Bureau with a passionate and persuasive group of advocates who connect with influencers on the local, state and national levels.

Two sessions of Communications Boot Camp will be held in Washington, D.C. in 2019. Participants will receive training on advocacy, public speaking, communicating with elected officials, social media strategy, targeted messaging and working with the media.

Women's Boot Camp graduates use their training: 

  • by joining AFBF’s Grassroots Outreach (GO) Team to positively influence elected federal legislators and create or act upon local media opportunities to support Farm Bureau’s policy work.

  • by joining social media campaigns to share positive messages about agriculture.

  • by influencing consumers when planning and implementing outreach events.

  • by speaking about agricultural innovations and enterprises with a variety of audiences, community groups, in classrooms and with neighbors.

Fall Session: October 22-25, 2019

  • Application Period: July 1-August 15, 2019
