Commodity meetings, business session set for Jan. 29
12/27/2013 at 9:25 a.m.
Arkansas Farm Bureau’s 2014 Winter Commodity Division Meetings will take place Jan. 29 at the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel
in North Little Rock.
The purpose of these meetings is to review Farm Bureau policy and make recommendations to the state board of directors for implementation. Actions taken at these meetings will determine the organization’s program of work on commodity issues during the coming year.
All 12 of the organization’s commodity divisions will meet at this time. The format will be similar to last year, with half of the meetings in the morning and the other half in the afternoon. A meeting of voting delegates
to ratify actions taken in the Dec. 6 business session and board meetings is scheduled for 9 a.m. Due to the ice storm causing the lack of a quorum during those meetings, legal requirements outlined in the organization’s bylaws make holding this meeting necessary.
The schedule of activities is as follows:
- 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m.: Registration
- 9-10 a.m.: Special business session
- 10 a.m.–Noon: Cotton, Beef Cattle, Soybeans, Specialty Crops, Swine, Forestry
- Noon–1 p.m.: Lunch
- 1–3 p.m.: Aquaculture, Dairy, Rice, Wheat & Feed Grains, Poultry, Equine
