Oklahoma Farm Bureau members from across the state are invited to gather with fellow members at OKFB’s 77th Annual Meeting to be held Nov. 16-18 at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Norman, Oklahoma.

As the organization’s largest annual gathering, the annual meeting provides an opportunity to celebrate Farm Bureau achievements, elect OKFB leaders, set policy for the next year, fellowship with friends from around the state and more.

This year, OKFB leaders and staff are eager to incorporate a few exciting changes to the convention’s schedule. 

On Friday, Nov. 16, a Foundation Night Out will allow members to enjoy an evening of fellowship with a concert by the Jason Young Band, a movie night and a trade show extravaganza. 

Members will gather to celebrate Farm Bureau achievements and efforts with a dinner, annual awards presentation and entertainment on Saturday evening. County representatives will not be charged for the event this year, but make sure to RSVP by Nov. 5.
