Join the Kansas Farmers Union Board of Directors as it holds its quarterly meeting and reviews proposed bylaw changes prior to the General Session. During the General Session, members nominate board candidates and national convention delegates, receive a report on organization finances, and begin drafting 2016 KFU Policy. KFU has a rich history of working to protect and promote the interests of family farmers and ranchers by taking a leadership role in advocating for farming, ranching and agricultural interests across the state. Each year, members review past policy, propose and debate new issues, and adopt policy for the coming year. Preceding dinner, Sarah Green will facilitate a social hour mixer focused on water issues in Kansas. Following dinner, evening activities include a presentation on grain marketing opportunities with NFO by Pete Lorenz, senior grain marketing analyst for National Farmers, as well as an early Farmers Union history lesson with National Farmers Union Honorary Historian Tom Giessel.
