Oklahoma Farm Bureau members ages 35-55 are encouraged to attend the second-annual Generation Bridge Winter Conference Jan. 27-28, 2023, at the Hilton Garden Inn and Conference Center in Edmond.
The conference will provide a chance for farmers and ranchers across the state to network with fellow agriculturalists, grow their professional and leadership skills and learn more about the industry.
Generation Bridge serves as a stepping stone after Young Farmers and Ranchers with an opportunity for members to get involved in OKFB beyond the county level as they work to develop connections across the state, expand their knowledge of Farm Bureau and create lasting memories.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from industry leaders, attend sessions and much more.
Attendees must register online for the conference. Hotel rooms are available at the Hilton Garden Inn in Edmond for $114 per night and can be booked by calling the hotel at (405) 285-0900.
