Western Region Administrators & Governmental Affairs Conference

Western Region Administrators & Governmental Affairs Conference

Montana Farm Bureau is thrilled to be hosting the western region’s administrators and governmental affairs conference this year in Kalispell.  Meaning “flat land above the lake”, Kalispell is located 7 miles north of Flathead Lake and is the gateway to Glacier National Park.  We welcome you and your families to our conference and encourage you to stay longer and explore all that our state has to offer.  We are excited about the agenda we’ve put together and hope to see you there!

Please register for all optional sessions you plan to attend to aid in meal counts.  Meals and other costs will be billed to participating state Farm Bureaus after the conference.
