Clermont County Farm Bureau seeks workers for membership campaign

Clermont County Farm Bureau is seeking leaders to help with the annual membership campaign.

In addition to helping the organization grow, volunteers have the opportunity to earn fun prizes.

“Membership is vital to Farm Bureau,” said Jan Schoellman, Clermont County membership co-coordinator. “We look forward to growing our numbers and having fun while we do it.”

The campaign officially kicked off Monday, Jan. 24. Volunteers learned about the process as well as get a preview of prizes.

“We have prizes for folks who participate at every level,” said Schoellman. “Even signing one new member will win you a prize.”

Volunteers can earn one-of-a-kind Farm Bureau clothing and a trip to American Farm Bureau Federation’s 2012 annual meeting in Honolulu.

“Of course, the primary purpose of the campaign is to help the organization grow,” said Schoelmman. “More members enable us to have a stronger legislative voice, offer more programming and create a stronger presence in our community.”

For more information, interested volunteers can contact the county office at (937) 378-2212 or (888) 378-2212.

The vision of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation is to create a partnership between farmers and consumers.

There are currently 2,400 plus members in Clermont County.
