This October, 15 women will get the opportunity to take part in the Farm Bureau Women's Communications Boot Camp in Washington, D.C.

The Women’s Communications Boot Camp is an intensive training opportunity for any female Farm Bureau member interested in building skills needed to communicate about agriculture and for Farm Bureau.

The training offers sessions on public speaking, advocacy in action, tips on testifying, targeting your message and working with the media.

Selected Farm Bureau women will come prepared to present a brief speech on one of the AFBF Priority Issues. Participants will complete an intensive round of media interviews and learn how to advocate with action about their pre-selected issue. Feedback is given throughout the training to better assist participants in becoming better Farm Bureau advocates.

Completed applications are due June 29, which includes a review by your state Farm Bureau Administrator or Organizational Director.
