IFB Young Leader conference canceled

The 2021 Illinois Farm Bureau Young Leader Conference scheduled for Jan. 22-23 in East Peoria has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

Jenny Webb, IFB Member Services and Public Relations program manager, noted the decision proved difficult.

“We will not be replacing the conference in a virtual format. One of the main benefits of attending the Young Leader Conference is the in-person networking and relationship building, and that unfortunately cannot be easily duplicated in a virtual setting,” said Webb.

The Young Leader Committee hopes to offer some various virtual engagement and learning opportunities in the coming months. More information about those opportunities will be in the coming months.
