Oklahoma women from all across the state met recently to reignite the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Agri-Women. AAW national president, Karen Yost, flew in from Billings, Montana to share ideas and guidance with our energetic group.
The AAW is a national coalition of farm and ranch women's organizations and individuals and was formed in 1974. This group of active women are extremely involved in agriculture policy and hold positions on ag research, biotechnology, crop protection, rural economic development, homeland security and taxation along with many, many other areas of impact to the agriculture community.
A steering committee was appointed during the two day event to begin a membership drive and making plans for our next meeting where officers will be elected.
