YF&R 2017 Leadership Conference

Florida Farm Bureau Federation is excited to announce the 2017 Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership
Conference to be held in Punta Gorda, FL, July 14 – 16, 2017. This year’s theme is “Hooked on Agriculture” and we
could not have a better location to get “hooked” than the Four Points by Sheraton at Punta Gorda Harborside.
Located on the edge of the Charlotte Harbor waterfront in beautiful South Florida, you can wander through the
unique shops and cobblestone streets through revitalized downtown Punta Gorda. Just steps from the hotel you
can experience this boating town’s rich history via outdoor murals, trolley tours, museums and restored period
homes. Our hotel features 106 well-appointed rooms with an outdoor heated pool, fitness facility and tennis, golf,
sand volleyball and beaches nearby.
This year’s YF&R Conference will offer more breakout sessions and opportunities to learn about various topics that
affect the agriculture industry and businesses.
The first night of the Conference will host keynote speaker Chad Prather who hosts the YouTube video
“Unapologetically Southern” where he has been referred to as an armchair philosopher, as he is most notably
recognized in a cowboy hat, speaking to the camera from the cab of his truck, expounding on the problems of the
world. The Conference will also feature the preliminary Florida Farm Bureau Discussion Meet, as well as our annual
Volleyball Tournament.
So cast your line and get “Hooked on Agriculture” and we’ll see you in Punta Gorda!
