ARKANSAS FARM BUREAU NEWS

Special ARFB business session scheduled for Jan. 29

12/23/2013 at 12:15 p.m.


A meeting of the voting delegates to ratify the actions taken in the Dec. 6 business session of the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation and the board meetings held that afternoon has been scheduled for 9 a.m., Wed., Jan. 29, 2014, in Silver City 3 & 4 at the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel in North Little Rock. Registration will open at 8 a.m. This meeting will be held prior to the 10 a.m. start of the Commodity Division meetings.

Due to the ice storm causing the lack of a quorum during the Dec. 6 meetings, legal requirements outlined in the organization's bylaws make holding this meeting necessary.

The list submitted in November by your county to certify the county's voting delegates will be used for this business session. Only those who were listed as voting delegates or alternate delegates are eligible to serve, unless your county officers are authorized to change the list of alternate delegates, in which case we can accept an amended list. We recommend that all county board members be listed as alternate delegates. Please complete the enclosed form and return via fax to Maleta Stephens by Jan. 15. Contact Maleta (maleta.stephens@arfb.com or 501-228-1470) if you need a copy of the list that was submitted in November. So that we may properly prepare for the breaks and meals, please ask your member services representative to contact Maleta by Fri., Jan. 24, to let us know the number of people who will be attending from your county.
