County officers from Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico Farmers Union chapters gather twice a year to develop plans for better representing their local constituents and using the resources available to build membership, cooperation, and advocacy skills.
The spring/summer retreat for 2008 will be at the Marriott Denver Airport at Gateway Park (16455 E. 40th Circle, Aurora, Colo.) and at May Farms (Byers, Colo.). In addition to discussing in issues that affect rural communities, farming and ranching, the county officers will spend Saturday afternoon in workshops and Sunday morning in leadership training, learning to use programs and tools that help them get local results, improving membership, outreach, and effectiveness.
On Saturday, April 19, officers will visit May Farms for a country breakfast fundraiser, followed by Kids’ Fun Day events from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both events are open to the public.
