Oklahoma Farm Bureau women from across the state are invited to attend the 2019 Women’s Leadership Committee Fall Conference September 27 and 28 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Edmond.

The conference will feature motivational speakers, leadership training and the sharing of ideas for the WLC program of work.

The books distributed will cover a variety of agricultural topics that are appropriate for the grade level receiving the books.
