The Arizona Farm Bureau Board of Directors is made up of volunteer leaders from all 14 active county Farm Bureaus. This board makes decisions, based on Farm Bureau policy, that guide the direction of our more than 24,000 member farm and ranch organization. The board is seated at the state annual convention each November.
