AFBF has surpassed its membership quota goal for 2016, posting growth of 14,835 member families. According to Robin Kinney, director of membership & program development, total membership for the year is 5,999,327 member families.
State Farm Bureaus that reached Quota and Navigator status are identified on the map. Quota is a membership goal for a state calculated by taking the final membership number reported to AFBF for the previous year and adding one member.
Charting a course for membership growth, Navigator reflects a state achieving an accelerated pace and surpassing the established quota goal. The Navigator Award is a calculated percentage of growth by state-size based on the previous year’s final reported membership.
The collective effort of state Farm Bureaus in attaining membership growth will be celebrated during the 2017 Annual Convention & IDEAg Trade Show in Phoenix.
