Ninety-one years ago, our founders knew family farms were worth fighting for. They gathered in solidarity to set policy that would improve life on their family farms and in their communities. We'll continue that legacy — although virtually — as we celebrate Wisconsin Farmers Union's 91st year.
For the health of our members, we've decided that the 2022 convention will be held virtually. Thanks again to all of our members who participated in a robust virtual policy discussion last year, 是什么导致了WFU成功的一年. We hope to bring that same energy to this virtual convention as we once again hold elections and set the course for 2022. We'll be holding two conventions in 2022 and hope to be able to meet in-person later in the year as we shift to December annual conventions moving forward.
Enjoy convention from the comfort of home and a reduced registration rate for members:
$20 per delegate or non-delegate family viewing group.
