Sullivan County FB Achieves Quota

Concord, N.H. – June 3, 2014 – Congratulations to the first county in the Granite State for reaching its Farm Bureau membership quota.  Sullivan County Farm Bureau reached its quota of 363 members, a 7 percent increase over last year. The county surged to the lead on May 29, winning the High-Five New Hampshire Farm Bureau Federation Membership Competition. The competition involved all ten counties competing to surpass their three-year average membership level by 5 percent for the prize of a 32” Smart TV.

“We extend special thanks to all Sullivan County volunteers for their efforts in this great accomplishment,” stated Sullivan County Farm Bureau President Cassy Sullivan of Charlestown. “Our board members believe in what Farm Bureau stands for. It is their dedication and hard work that enabled us to achieve our membership goal. Sullivan County Farm Bureau would also like to thank all our members, those who have renewed and those who have just joined. Your membership is very important to our grassroots organization.”

Although the county competition is over, the High-Five Membership Competition continues until June 30. Every Farm Bureau member has an opportunity to win! Those who sign up at least one member will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Tractor Supply gift card. Plus the individual who signs up the most members by September 30 will receive a free one-year membership and Farm Bureau shirt.

The New Hampshire Farm Bureau President Jeff Holmes of Langdon is pleased that his county was first to achieve quota. “It’s a good start to a big year for Sullivan County,” stated President Holmes. “The county will be hosting the state Farm Bureau annual meeting this year on November 7-8 at the Fireside Inn & Suites in West Lebanon.”

“To meet our state quota we still need the help of our members,” mentioned President Holmes. “States reaching their membership quota by September 30 will be recognized by the American Farm Bureau Federation at their annual meeting in January. I would like to see New Hampshire accomplish its goal of 3,365 members and encourage everyone to join us in our quest.”

As a non-profit Federation, membership is vital to the success of the state’s voice of agriculture. The New Hampshire Farm Bureau is the leading advocate for the great vocation of agriculture in the state.  Members are part of the nation’s six million Farm Bureau members who form the American Farm Bureau Federation. Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization where the members establish policy and direction.
