For the first time since 1977, Illinois Farm Bureau members achieved a new record – an increase of 160 M members, resulting in total 2019 membership of 79,159 M members.
“Congratulations and thank you to all our members, leaders and staff,” said Richard Guebert Jr., IFB president. “I continue to see it every day -- this is the greatest organization – there is nothing we cannot accomplish when we all work together.”
Guebert further urged members to be creative and find new ways to show the value of membership to not only attract new members, but also maintain current members.

“Our work has just begun. We must engage with those brought back into the organization, talk to the new members, and continue to spread the word of who Farm Bureau is and what we do,” Guebert noted.
