KCFB GOVERNING BOARD AND COMMITTEES

The Kern County Farm Bureau is divided into three geographic districts and each district is represented by a maximum of eleven directors on the Board of Directors. The Board meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the KCFB office in Bakersfield, unless otherwise noticed. Members are always welcome to attend, but it is suggested you contact the office in advance for more information about each month’s agenda. The Annual Meeting for all members is held in October, at which time Officers and Board Members are ratified by those in attendance who maintain an “agricultural” membership.
