Northwest Farm Managers Association
The Association was formed in 1909, a forerunner to university extension work.
The Association bylaws state that the purpose of the organization is to
(a) bring scientific knowledge to bear upon the problem solving of agriculture,
(b) serves as a clearinghouse for practical ideas in farm and agribusiness firm management, and
(c) provide encouragement and support for university research and Extension work in farm management, marketing, and related policy.
Major activities of the Association were the annual winter meeting, summer tours, and field day events.
The Association is strictly non-factional and nonpolitical and is open to all persons interested in solving economic problems of farm operators.
The fee of $50 is used to defray costs of the winter meeting. No officer receives any payment from the Association for service contributions.
The Association is represented by over 200 members.
A goal of Northwest Farm Managers Association is to organize the premier meeting/symposium on farm management in this region to help producers prepare for a future in agriculture. The meeting will provide top quality speakers, that attendees otherwise may not have the opportunity to hear, to address important agricultural issues. The meeting also provides a forum for attendees to visit and deliberate with peers, presenters, and sponsors.
The Association welcomes the assistance of sponsors to achieve the goal of providing the premier annual symposium on agriculture in this region.
Sponsors are encouraged to attend the annual meeting and are recognized in the program brochure and during the program. Members are encouraged to patronize sponsors' businesses throughout the year for their support of the Association.
