In 2016, the UFBF Board of Directors instituted Policy Issues Research Committees (PIRCs). PIRCs are appointed by the Board of Directors to discuss and recommend policy for a particular issue.
PIRCs meet as needed with a greater emphasis on study and research. Better informed PIRCs lead to better informed county Farm Bureaus. Better informed county Farm Bureaus lead to stronger Farm Bureau policy. Effective PIRCs provide a great forum for continued leadership development.
