The members of the American Farm Bureau Federation held their voting delegates meeting today to set policy for the coming year. The meeting was presided over by President Bob Stallman who then met with the press one final time for questions. Bob says that although there were a number of language changes in existing policies most of the day was spent re-affirming existing policies. He says that each year they start with a clean slate and get right to work in Washington, DC working on behalf of their members.
Although most members will be heading home the board of directors of AFBF will still be here working in the morning when they hold their meeting. That will be the final duties performed here in Nashville. It’s off to San Antonio next year!
