Oklahoma Farm Bureau members are invited to attend the 2018 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention and IDEAg Trade Show held Jan. 5-10, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Members will have the opportunity to attend educational workshops about the outlook for agriculture, business acumen and leadership, listen to impactful policy discussions, network with exhibitors in the IDEAg Trade Show, hear from exemplary keynote speakers, cheer on Oklahoma contestants in a variety of competitions, visit with old and new friends from across the nation, and much more.
Convention attendees also will hear from Oklahoma native Reba McEntire, an iconic entertainer who was raised on an 8,000-acre ranch in rural Oklahoma. A multi-media mogul and mom with a successful career across music, television, film and retail, McEntire will join AFBF President Zippy Duvall during the closing general session on Monday, Jan. 8.
Though all members are encouraged to make the trip, the OKFB delegate body will select a group of members to represent Oklahoma as delegates during the AFBF resolutions session.
Members attending the convention are invited to join OKFB for a welcome reception on Saturday, Jan. 6 at 5:30 p.m.
