Annual American Farm Bureau Convention

Nov 03, 2017


Justin Crowe, Extension Specialist

We have a VERY exciting opportunity that has just been presented to us. The American Farm Bureau Federation has extended an opportunity for Tennessee 4-H and FFA members to attend their annual meeting, which will be held in Nashville in 2018!

They are offering FREE admission to high school age 4-H members and one chaperone per county to attend their meeting. I have attended this meeting in the past and it’s wonderful. There are lots of excellent workshops and speakers, and the trade show is great, too! We want to have a large presence there. Below are some key pieces to keep in mind:

  • High school age 4-H members that wish to attend, must be supervised by either an agent or volunteer leader.
  • 4-H members should register through your 4-H agent.

Agents:

  • Register your group no later than November 17th.
  • Refer to the email sent 10/18/17 with instructions and links for registration..
  • You may attend Sunday, January 7th or Monday, January 8th (or both days).
