The County Presidents Conference will gather county Farm Bureau association leaders to:

  • Build relationships between peers leading county associations across the state.
  • Increase knowledge of Farm Bureau priorities, services, opportunities and support in order to elevate the success of local work and establish greater consistency in association governance and strategy.
  • Enhance the skills and capacity of county presidents as the foundation for high-functioning, efficient and effective county associations.



Register here by January 4.

Attendees are encouraged to participate in Day at the Statehouse activities on Wednesday, January 17. Please find more information and register for that event separately here.


Hotel accommodations are the responsibility of the individual/county Farm Bureau. The negotiated rate at the Cyrus Hotel, our host venue, is $159 rate per night plus taxes. Most conference activities will take place in the Cyrus Hotel and it is within easy walking distance of outside venues. Complimentary transportation will also be provided from the Cyrus Hotel to the Beacon.
