As a grassroots organization, Farm Bureau's strength depends on its members' ability to analyze agricultural issues and decide on solutions that best meet their needs. The Collegiate Discussion Meet is designed to build these crucial skills in young, active collegiate leaders in agriculture through simulating a committee meeting where discussion and engaged participation is expected from each participant. By participating, members build basic discussion skills, develop a keen understanding of important agricultural issues and explore how groups can pool knowledge to reach consensus and solve problems.
