GFB accepting proposed policy changes

As the voice of Georgia farmers, Georgia Farm Bureau works to make sure its policy stances reflect the needs and desires of its farmer members. To do this, GFB takes policy suggestions and reviews them through its annual Policy Development process. GFB is now accepting policy submissions for its 2019 policy book.

“This process is critical to maintaining the grassroots vision and goals of our organization and will provide direction for us in the legislative arena for the coming year,” said GFB President Gerald Long.

Long asked for policy submissions and encouraged GFB members to recommend the deletion of existing policy that is vague or outdated.

For access to an electronic version of the 2018 GFB Policy Book or to file a policy submission, contact your county Farm Bureau office manager. All policy submissions must be approved by a county Farm Bureau president. The deadline to submit your resolution(s) to the Public Policy Department is Sept. 7. If you have questions regarding the Policy Development process, please contact Katie Duvall at or 478-474-0679, ext. 5217.
