Oklahoma Farm Bureau is excited to host leadership development sessions for all Farm Bureau members at our annual meeting Nov. 11-13 at the Embassy Suites and Convention Center in Norman.
Four sessions and a luncheon will be offered Friday morning, Nov. 11 for county Farm Bureau leaders to brush up on their skills and abilities that will help them serve the grassroots organization.
New county board member training
The session starting at 10 a.m. will highlight the roles and responsibilities of the organization’s county leaders while developing their leadership skills. Members will learn how to prepare for meetings, maintain records of the organization, serve all Farm Bureau members and much more.
This session will feature ways for county leaders to delegate tasks to encourage participation by local Farm Bureau members. Starting at 10 a.m., leaders will learn the importance of getting more Farm Bureau members involved in the organization.
Understanding the financial side of the grassroots organization is vital to the longevity of a county Farm Bureau. Join us for this session starting at 10:50 a.m. to gain a better understanding of the financial reports county Farm Bureaus use.
Strategic planning training
Planning for any aspect in life is important, especially planning the work of an organization. Farm Bureau members will have the opportunity to learn the best practices for putting a strategic plan together starting at 10:50 a.m.
Panel and luncheon
Gather your county Farm Bureau members for the panel discussion during lunch at 11:30 a.m. for even more ideas to build your county organization. Featuring county presidents and board members, real-life examples will be provided for attendees to take back to their counties. Lunch will be provided for attendees.
