What is FB ACT?

FB ACT (Farm Bureau Agricultural Contact Team) is a program helping you take back your influence in Washington, Springfield and even your own backyard. FB ACT is a tool to contact your elected official and ask them to vote in support of Illinois farmers.

How will I know when to act?

When legislation arises, you may be contacted by email or a text message on your cell phone.

If I join, what is expected of me?

As an FB ACT member, you are asked to respond to every action request. The better question is what do you expect from yourself? FB ACT has little to do with our expectations and more to do with the steps you're willing to take to protect your farm.

Who decided which issues FB ACT should address?

Farmers! FB ACT is the final step in IFB's grassroots policy process. After an IFB voting member brings an idea, it's researched, voted on and made into policy.

The policy then needs to be put into action. That's where you come in.

As an FB ACT member, you'll make the phone call, send the email, use social media or attend the meeting that will help turn policy into a law, regulation or statement that supports you and your fellow farmers.

OK, I'm convinced. How do I get started?
