Young Farmers is recruiting new members to join our Board of Directors, with a focus on bringing in diverse farmer leaders who can help us shape the future of agriculture. We aim to elect at least two new board members who are available beginning June 2023, and up to five total new members by December 2023. At least 50% of our Board is always composed of farmers, and we seek to preserve majority BIPOC board membership. We are also working towards filling the gaps to represent all regions of the United States and bring in needed skill areas, particularly legal and finance expertise.
We are seeking farmer leaders with legal and finance expertise, as well as individuals who represent diverse backgrounds, regions, and farming experiences. Applicants should have a passion for the future of agriculture, and a willingness to collaborate with others to create a more sustainable and equitable food system.
