The Alabama Farmers Federation Women’s Leadership Committee provides an opportunity for women to actively participate in policymaking and policy execution activities. Federation women are encouraged to play a major role in the overall organization.
The committee is structured as an “arm of the board,” acting as liaison between Alfa’s board and membership and helping to implement Alfa policies and programs.
