County Farm Bureau policy development teams are digging into their annual process of crafting resolutions that become the policy guiding Michigan Farm Bureau’s legislative and regulatory work year-round. Several resources are available to help members engage.

Emerging issue briefs: To help members get discussion and ideas flowing, Farm Bureau staff prepare briefs on developing and evolving issues impacting the agriculture sector. Briefs this year include:

Review policy additions, changes or deletions recommended by state-level advisory committees:

Current policy: The 2022 MFB and AFBF policy books are available to explore, search and download as counties consider new language, amendments to existing language or proposed deletions.

Submit your ideas: Use this form to submit ideas or amendments throughout the year.

Policy development process: Once compiled, hundreds of resolutions from Michigan’s 65 county Farm Bureaus will be considered by a 21-member state-level policy development committee. The final slate of policies is then considered by voting delegates at MFB’s annual meeting, Nov. 29-30 in Grand Rapids.

Contact your county Farm Bureau to learn more about participating in local policy development activities.
