You may not have a crystal ball, or the ability to determine the future of agriculture.
But your special skills can create great things for ag.
Get involved and help create a positive future for farming.
The Illinois Farm Bureau ACTION TEAMs are made up of four teams with 10-15 volunteers on each. They meet for one day, twice a year – and turn unique ideas and experiences into a year of activities and amazing results.
Your team meets twice a year to brainstorm and develop a plan for one or two statewide projects. Even before you leave your team, the IFB staff begins its work to help make your ideas a reality. If your proposal is approved by the IFB Board, it is then set into action to produce great results.

Is your committee looking for something new and fresh to do this year? Then take a look at nearly 250 projects from across the state. County Farm Bureaus share some of their favorite activities as part of IFB’s PEARS (Program Evaluation and Awards Reporting System) program. During Illinois Farm Bureau’s Annual Meeting in December, counties with innovative programs may be awarded bronze, silver or gold stars. Thanks to everyone for sharing and congratulations to everyone who won stars.
