2018 Governmental Affairs Leadership Conference (GALC)

GALC Webhead (1)


Think about all of the fuel used on your farm – gasoline, diesel, propane, maybe even wind and solar. Like farm machinery and buildings, Farm Bureau also requires fuel. Its source of energy is YOU – our members. The organization remains at top performance only when you actively engage in important issues. Farm Bureau truly is “Powered by Farmers!”

Attend the Illinois Farm Bureau Governmental Affairs Leadership Conference and help lead the future of agriculture.
