AFBF welcomes submissions of proposals for workshops and presentations during the 2019 Farm Bureau FUSION Conference taking place March 15-18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Proposals will be accepted through the online submission form. All submissions must be received by Wednesday, August 15, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.  

Sessions should be forward-thinking and stimulate discussion and engagement with attendees.  Our goal is to provide balanced workshops that meet the variety of interests of conference attendees. We aim to provide specific, action-item focused sessions that provide attendees with knowledge they can take back and apply to their own operations and daily lives. We expect 1,300+ members and state staff from across the country to participate in the Farm Bureau FUSION Conference.  Attendees represent the Promotion & Education, Women’s Leadership, and Young Farmers & Ranchers programs.
