Women's Leadership Committee- What We Do
The Women's Leadership Committee:
- Fosters Leadership Development by proving opportunities for farm and ranch women to hone their communication, presentation, working with the media, and organization skills. Farm Bureau women are leaders in their communities, state and nation.
- Promotes Ag Education - volunteers visit local schools and share their real life experiences in agriculture, read accurate Ag books, and provide teachers with classroom resources developed through USU's Agriculture in the Classroom Program. Volunteers also organize Farm Field Days bringing elementary aged students on to the farm for a day to experience the farm first hand.
- Communicates the Ag Story as Farm Bureau women help Utahns better understand the importance of agriculture through Our Food Link activities (Our Food Link Planning Kit) effectively reaching consumers of all ages and backgrounds with information about today's agriculture.
- Encourages Political Involvement through participation in FBACT, County Spring Issues Surfacing Meetings, Commodity Committees, surfacing candidates for public office, building coalitions outside Farm Bureau, and building relationships with commissioners and state and federal legislators and identifying issues at the grassroots level and working to implement policy through the Legislature and Congress.
