Community Focus - State Women's Leadership Conference
- May 01, 2014
Seven members of the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women's Committee (Melinda Pence, Linda Gooch, Mary Ann May, Thelma Blair, Cathy Pleasants, Joyce Hester and Phyllis Long) attended the state Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Conference on March 21 - 22, 2014. They heard several good speakers at the General Sessions including a session on Changing Your World, The Power of One, What It Takes, and a closing session on "Who Needs Legs When You Have Wings", by Chad Hymas. We also heard updates on legislative issues and member benefits. Breakout sessions included:
1.Health Care/Affordable Care Act,
2. Personal Safety-Self Defense,
3. Advocating for Agriculture Through Shared Values,
4. Farm Safety: Mitigating the Risk.
We also chose from 4 tours that included Gainesway Farms, Keeneland, Aviation Museum, and Shaker Village. The food was excellent and speakers were very motivational. The committee went away with a lot of ideas about things that could be done in Lincoln County to educate others about what farmers do and ideas to better the farming industry.
