Farmers and ranchers can register now to attend the 2022 American Farm Bureau Convention. Micheal Clements shares the details.

Clements: Registration for the general public opened Monday for the 2022 American Farm Bureau Convention. Niki Jones, IDEAg Events Marketing Director, says the convention will be held in-person January 7-12, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Jones: This is the 103rd consecutive American Farm Bureau convention. There will be an option for anyone that chooses not to attend in person to see portions of the event virtually, but registration is open now for in-person attendees. You can participate in the convention through educational workshops to advance leadership skills, expand business acumen and gain deep insight into the trends of food production.

Clements: Jones says there will be a wide variety of educational workshops available to in-person attendees.

Jones: The workshop topics range from the 2023 farm bill, market outlook, climate policy and trade, to ag education resources, effective advocacy and mental health. And when you go through the registration process, there are a few things you can sign up for today. One of the new sessions is the mental health training workshop. Additionally, you can sign up for Georgia tours, and, as always, a fan favorite, the flapjack fundraiser, and that'll be a Sunday morning breakfast to raise money for the Foundation.

Clements: You can register to attend the event online.

Jones: Go to annualconvention.fb.org to register. And we hope to see everyone out in person in Atlanta. It's a beautiful city and we've got a lot of great things planned for the attendees this year.

Clements: Again, learn more and register to attend at annualconvention.fb.org. Micheal Clements, Washington.
