Leadership Conference

Annually in the spring, women from across the state meet for the opportunity to help explore ways needed to develop strong leaders now and in the future. The 2016 conference will held at the Shilo Inn, Idaho Falls, March 11-12.   See the Events/Registration tab on the home page for registration information.  Your county women’s chair or any member of the State Women’s Leadership Committee also has more information. 

Our Food Link

Our Food Link (formerly Food Check-Out Week) is a year-round program volunteers can use to effectively reach consumers of all ages and backgrounds with information about today’s agriculture.  During February, the Women’s Leadership Committee will distribute snack bags to the legislature, hold the speech contest finals and visit Ronald McDonald House.  


County History

History books keep the most interesting record of yearly activities and can be a great help in the years to come to other chairmen.

Health & Safety

Goals of the IFB Health/Safety Committee are incorporated and supported by the Women's Leadership Committee. New materials have been obtained to assist the counties in their program. In addition to the GlitterBug Handwashing kit, a gravity flow wagon, magnetic display, bulletin board templates, ABC story book and CD; Ride Safe, Ride Smart DVD; A Guide to Off-Hwy Riding DVD; plus ATV guides for youth and parents have been added. A newsletter is distributed containing project ideas and website addresses. A Health Fair is held at the annual meeting of the Idaho Farm Bureau Federation.
