The 2014 AFBF Annual Convention is returning to San Antonio, Texas Jan. 11–16, 2014.
Tennessee Farm Bureau leaders will have the choice to fly from Knoxville, Nashville or Memphis to San Antonio on Saturday, Jan. 11 and return to Tennessee on Thursday, Jan. 16.
The Tennessee delegation will be housed in the Hyatt Regency on the famous San Antonio Riverwalk. Located two blocks from the San Antonio Convention Center, the Hyatt Regency is a short walk or shuttle bus ride to all convention activities.
Three general sessions with high profile speakers will be mixed with workshops on current issues, leadership, business, production and profitability. The showcase tradeshow will offer a change of pace where convention goers can visit with each other and agricultural vendors as well as share ideas at the county Farm Bureau Idea Exchange.
Young Farmers and Ranchers from across the country will compete for the pickup trucks, tractors and chainsaws, as well as vouchers and cash prizes.
Farm Bureau Women’s committee members will meet to discuss their agenda for the year. Both groups will elect their leaders for 2014.
Optional activities include the AFBF Foundation sponsored golf tournament and sport clay shooting contest on Saturday, flapjack breakfast on Sunday morning and a rodeo on Monday evening. The Foundation will also host its silent auction featuring items from every state during the tradeshow.
