No doubt your county Farm Bureau is making plans for those who will attend American Farm Bureau Federation’s 2014 Annual Convention, Jan. 12-15, in San Antonio. To assist you in that regard, Arkansas Farm Bureau is offering land-only travel packages to the convention.
Packages are available for three or four nights, with single- or double-occupancy rooms. All begin Jan. 11 and include lodging at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, convention registration, and admission to the Arkansas President’s Reception and the Foundation for Agriculture Flapjack Breakfast. For more information on these packages, including prices, contact MaLeta Stephens at 501-228-1470 or click here.
More than 7,000 Farm Bureau members from across the nation are expected to gather in the Alamo City for the 95th Annual Convention to hear from distinguished leaders and participate in a grassroots policy-setting process that will guide AFBF through 2014. Gen. Stan McChrystal, a retired four-star general and former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, will deliver the keynote address.
Country music star Josh Turner will headline the Foundation’s Night Out on Jan. 13. The event will take place at Cowboys Dancehall and will also feature two bull riding showcases by Professional Bull Riders, billiards and a mechanical bull. Tickets for this Farm Bureau exclusive event are $63 and can be purchased here.
Convention attendees can also purchase discount tickets to see the San Antonio Spurs play basketball.
