The strength of Oklahoma Farm Bureau lies in its grassroots membership, as our members play the most integral role in our organization. Members work hard from August through November to finalize OKFB policies for the upcoming year, but their work isn’t finished in November. OKFB needs the help of its members to fight for OKFB policy at the state Capitol! As the legislative session gears up, we cannot stress enough the significance of your involvement in the legislative process.
Here’s how to get involved:

Attend the OKFB Legislative Leadership Conference.
The OKFB Legislative Leadership Conference is a perfect opportunity for Farm Bureau members to discuss statewide policy with various state leaders including Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, House Speaker Charles McCall, Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis and more. The conference also will give you the opportunity to visit one-on-one with OKFB’s Champion and 100 Percent Club members in the legislature, along with your own state lawmakers.
Schedule a state Capitol visit.
As a constituent, your legislators want to hear from you. Call the OKFB Public Policy office to schedule a time for your county to visit its legislators. You’ll receive a briefing from OKFB before you meet with your legislators at the state Capitol, followed by a lunch with your elected officials. Simply voicing your opinions and concerns with your legislators can make all the difference.
Sign up for legislative action alerts.
The OKFB Public Policy team works hard to fight for your policy at the state Capitol, but we cannot do it without you. Your legislators must hear about your priorities straight from you! Sign up today to receive notification when your legislator needs to hear from you on specific bills. Visit the OKAgPolicy Action Center, scroll to the “Quick Sign Up” box at the bottom, enter your email address and zip code and then click the arrow. Fill in the remaining information and click “Save.” Please encourage your county boards and all of your members to sign up, too.
