Registration is open for Farm Bureau’s FUSION Reimagined Conference next month. Micheal Clements shares what attendees can expect from the virtual event.

Clements: Farm Bureau will host its Reimagined Fusion Conference March 11-13. Greg Corcoran, an Ohio farmer and vice chair of the AFBF Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee, says the virtual event brings together Farm Bureau members for networking and learning.

Corcoran: The conference provides an opportunity to network, connect, learn and engage with other members, along with our sponsors and industry leaders. For our reimagined conference, we will be welcoming other agriculture organizations as well. So, leaders and supporters of ag, to join the virtual event to learn and share and to grow.

Clements: The conference will include virtual farm tours, learning sessions and entertainment.

Corcoran: The AFBF program committees and staff have reimagined all aspects of the conference. So, from the farm tours to podcasts that will allow attendees to learn while they are away from their homes, to engaging keynote speakers, our hope is to make it feel like attendees are actually at the conference.

Clements: Registration is free, and the first 500 Farm Bureau members will receive a conference experience box.

Corcoran: With the conference content being available online, registration will stay open until the final events, which start at 6:30 pm ET on Saturday, March 13. So, this will allow attendees who have enjoyed the programming at the beginning of the conference to encourage their friends and other members to join in on the learning and networking and relationship building later in the week.

Clements: Register for the event at fb.org. Micheal Clements, Washington.
