Policy Development

NDFB's policy development process provides our members with a mechanism to voice issues and concerns. The future of North Dakota agriculture depends on the integrity of our policy development methods and the success of our implementation process.

If  YOU believe NDFB needs to take a proactive stand on an issue, please engage yourself in our policy development process. Here are a few tips and examples to help you through the process.
