Alabama Farmers Federation members may register through Jan. 11 for the 2017 Commodity Organizational Meeting Feb. 7-9 in Montgomery.
Over three days, hundreds of farmers will attend educational seminars and vote for leaders on 16 of the Federation’s state commodity committees.
“We encourage county leaders to thoughtfully consider who from their county would make a good nominee for the committees and which members should be appointed as voting delegates,” said Brian Hardin, Federation Governmental and Agricultural Programs Department director. “During lunch at the event, we’ll recognize those who have served the maximum nine years on a commodity committee.”
Members may only serve on one state commodity committee. After serving three consecutive terms, a member must wait a year before running for that same committee.-
