Convention is tentatively planned to be from 10am-4pm Saturday with networking breaks and a keynote planned between sessions.
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, which led to a successful year for WFU. 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. Each year, members can introduce policy resolutions as “Special Orders of Business,” which are items that are of utmost importance to the organization. This is a way to prioritize issues and signal how WFU should focus advocacy efforts. This year, our Board of Directors voted to only allow consideration and adoption of Bylaw Changes and Special Orders of Business.
