Women's Program

2017 Women's Conference

NC Farm Bureau's 37th Women's Conference will be held March 31 – April 1, 2017, at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham, NC. Please identify women in your county, including LEAD Program participants and young farmers and ranchers, who would benefit from this leadership experience and urge them to attend.

NC Farm Bureau's State Women's Committee has planned a program reflecting the interests and concerns of women from farm families across the state, including a Silent Auction to support Ag in the Classroom. Items donated for this worthwhile project will be appreciated. A tentative agenda is attached.
