What is FB ACT?
FB ACT (Farm Bureau Agricultural Contact Team) is a program helping you take back your influence in Washington, Springfield, and your local community. FB ACT is our way of putting you in instant contact with policy makers on priority ag issues.
How will I know when to act?
When we need you to act, you’ll be contacted by email and/or text message alerts. A link will be sent, and you can act within an instant.
If I join, what is expected of me?
As a member of FB ACT, we ask that you respond to every action request. A typical year sees 5-8 action requests. The real expectation is that you continue your advocate journey and develop yourself as a top advocate for agriculture.
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.
FB ACT members make phone calls, send emails, use social media, or attend meetings that will help turn policy into ag friendly laws or regulations.
OK, I'm convinced. How do I get started?
