AFB Honors 20th Women’s Boot Camp Graduates

Fifteen farm and ranch women leaders graduated from the spring session of the Women’s Communications Boot Camp hosted by the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The agricultural leaders completed an intensive four-day course that featured hands-on sessions focused on public speaking, working with the media, and messaging. Program graduates will use their training to strategically support the Farm Bureau’s priority issues. This includes participating in local media opportunities, sharing information with elected officials, and joining social media campaigns that spotlight modern agriculture.

“Boot Camp class members are ‘all-in’ when it comes to teamwork, supporting one another, networking, and thoughtfully considering how what they’ve learned relates to agricultural advocacy,’ says Isabella Chism, chair of the AFB Women’s Leadership Committee. “They’ve been both fully present and forward-thinking about how to apply their skills to benefit agriculture’s future.”

AFB President Zippy Duvall says,” We’re proud to recognize the women who completed this training.”
