Join us virtually!

 

Ninety years ago, our founders knew family farms were worth fighting for. They gathered in solidarity to set policy that would improve life on their family farms and in their communities. We'll continue that legacy — although virtually — as we celebrate Wisconsin Farmers Union's 90th year. 

 

 

 

Enjoy convention from the comfort of home and a reduced registration rate for members:
$20 per delegate or non-delegate family viewing group.

Please note, due to the virtual nature of the event this year, there will be a firm registration deadlines:
 

January 11th for delegates
 January 29th for non-delegates 

 

If you wish to take part in the WFU policy process, please register as a delegate. Ages 16+ may serve as delegates. All active counties at their annual meeting should have elected delegates who are current on annual dues. Individual members who are members in good standing from active and non-active counties may register as individual delegates to vote their own vote.
