Register for the Oregon Young Farmers & Ranchers Leadership Conference, Nov. 15-17 in Portland

Young farmers, ranchers, and others interested in agriculture are encouraged to register for the 2019 Oregon Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Leadership Conference, set for Nov. 15-17 at the Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel.  

Open to Farm Bureau members ages 16 through 35 (as of Jan. 1, 2019), the conference is geared toward young people interested in improving their leadership and communication skills, learning about the most important issues impacting Oregon’s agriculture community, gaining business tips from experts, networking with peers, and having fun!

“Last year’s conference was a huge success with nearly 100 attendees,” said Jenny Freeborn, chair of the Oregon Farm Bureau YF&R Committee. “The conference is a great opportunity for young people to learn about different aspects of agriculture and have a great time with new and old friends.”

To get the reduced rate for lodging, hotel reservations must be made by Oct. 28 — and the $50 conference registration fee is due by Nov. 7 (fee includes dinner on Friday and Saturday and lunch on Saturday).

Find the registration form and hotel information at OregonFB.org/yfrconference.

For more information, email yfr@oregonfb.org or call Jacon Taylor at 541.589.9694.
