Kentucky Farm Bureau took home several organizational awards presented at this year’s American Farm Bureau Federation’s (AFBF) 101st annual convention. Each year state Farm Bureaus are presented awards in different categories related to programs and initiatives.
KFB was honored with awards in all four Award of Excellence categories given, including: Advocacy; Engagement and Outreach; Leadership and Business Development; and Membership Value.
KFB President Mark Haney said he was proud of the efforts made by the organization.
“It is my pleasure to accept the Awards of Excellence on behalf of our organization. These awards are a result of the tireless efforts of our volunteer leadership and staff,” he said. “I am proud of our grassroots leadership and the hard work they put in to make our programs exceptional.”
Haney, who led the 400-plus Kentucky member delegation to the convention, accepted the awards on behalf of KFB.
Kentucky Farm Bureau, with more than 462,000 member families statewide, is the state’s largest general farm organization. Over 400 members from Kentucky attended the 101st Annual Convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation, held January 17-22 in Austin, TX to recognize this year’s individual and organizational achievements and adopt policy for 2020.
