Policy & Advocacy - Development
North Dakota Farm Bureau's policies are the culmination of the policy development process. Resolutions become organizational policy at the NDFB state annual meeting, when members representing each county Farm Bureau vote upon each resolution forwarded.
Following the North Dakota Farm Bureau Annual Meeting, members of each county Farm Bureau met to prioritize issues for 2013.
