Advisory Committees

MFBF Advisory Committees

 

The Massachusetts Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) has several committees which advise the organization’s Board of Directors on specific subject matters pertinent to MFBF activities and interests. The idea behind committees is to have subject matter experts spend time reviewing topics and issues and then make recommendations to the Board of Directors. Below is a list of the committees and their purposes.
