The bright spots in 2020 felt few and far between, but Michigan Farm Bureau’s (MFB) Hitching Post Series—the product of a pandemic pivot—virtually captured an audience of local members interested in diving deeper into agriculture issues and exploring how we can influence growth, success and profitability within the food and farm sector through our organization’s grassroots policy.
Register for the Feb. 9 Hitching Post to save your spot!
Kicking off the 2021 series will be MFB President Carl Bednarski; Matt Smego, MFB’s Public Policy and Commodity Division director; John Kran, MFB’s national legislative counsel; and Rob Anderson, MFB’s government relations manager. The quartet of farm policy experts will discuss agricultural issues that could be in the state & federal legislative and regulatory spotlight this year.
Participants will also get the inside scoop on legislative leadership, committees and political dynamics as the Michigan Legislature and Congress resume session with numerous newly-elected joining the ranks.
“We’re excited to bring the Hitching Post back to you in 2021,” said MFB President Carl Bednarski. “Get ready for a second year of exclusive content from top-notch experts and guests on issues impacting our state’s farms and rural communities.”
“Like many of you, we’re longing for a return to in-person gatherings—especially our statewide winter events that build excitement heading into another year of quality programs planned by county Farm Bureaus. And if you’re missing Lansing Legislative Seminar in particular, you won’t want to miss the first-quarter Hitching Post lineup.”
In addition to the Zoom meeting, the series will be livestreamed on the MFB Facebook page.
If you’re unable to participate on Feb. 9, but still interested in the content, all events will be recorded and posted to the MFB YouTube Channel.
