State Policy Development Committee

The Michigan Farm Bureau (MFB) Policy Development Committee is charged with reviewing hundreds of policy recommendations from 65 county Farm Bureaus. 

The committee's final report of proposed state and federal policy resolutions is then debated and voted on by member delegates to the MFB Annual Meeting each year.

Committee members are appointed by the MFB Board of Directors and serve a one-year term, with eligibility for a one-year reappointment. The committee is chaired by the current vice president of the MFB Board of Directors.
