WFBF to Host Leadership Boot Camp in November
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/23/2019
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau's Promotion and Education Committee is hosting a one-day Leadership Boot Camp this fall. The conference, which is slated for November 16 at the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center in Manitowoc, will focus on working with the
media and using social media to advocate for agriculture.
"Boot Camp was designed by our committee to serve as a fast-paced, challenging training session," said Lynn Leahy, one of the event planners. "It is critical for us as farmers and agriculturists to have a deep understanding of how we can connect with the general
public through various media outlets."
The day begins with a session on how to prepare for media interviews followed by time to practice with a mock TV interview. After lunch, attendees will learn about social media and how to share agriculture's story on a digital platform.
The Leadership Boot Camp is open to all Farm Bureau members. Registration is $20 and includes the training, lunch and a ticket to tour the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center.
The registration deadline is October 25. For more information or to register, visit wfbf.com/leadership-boot-camp.
