Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation County Activities of Excellence
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is a grassroots organization whose effectiveness is the result of innovative, action-oriented programs developed by county Farm Bureaus. The County Activities of Excellence (CAE) Program is designed to celebrate and recognize such programs. The purpose of the program is to recognize outstanding county Farm Bureau programs and share successful programs and activities.
The County Activities of Excellence Program focuses on the priority issues of the organization, seeking county applications in the categories of:
- Legislative Accomplishments
- Local Affairs
- Ag Promotion & Education
- Leadership Development
- Membership Recruitment & Retention
- Member Services & Communication
- Young Farmer and Agriculturist (YFA) Program
- Special Program
Eight outstanding county programs will be selected to display their winning program/activity during the WFBF 97th Annual Meeting Trade Show on December 3-4 at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells. One winner will be selected in each of the eight program categories. Those counties with a winning entry will receive $500 toward expenses to participate in the CAE program. Complimentary exhibit space will be provided for county Farm Bureau programs selected as Activities of Excellence.
Enter your county’s outstanding program and you may be showing it to Farm Bureau members from across the state in December!
