MFBF was recognized as one of the top Farm Bureaus for membership programs and achievements in 2018 with the Pinnacle Award during the American Farm Bureau Federation’s (AFBF’s) Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
The Pinnacle Award is the highest award a state Farm Bureau can earn for program and membership achievement. Farm Bureaus compete annually for this award against other state Farm Bureaus of the same-sized membership. This is the tenth time in 11 years that MFBF has received this honor.
To earn this award, MFBF first has to receive Awards For Excellence in four of possible four program activity areas, including advocacy: engagement and outreach: leadership and business development; and membership value.
“Our staff and volunteers leaders work hard throughout the year, which allowed our organization to receive the Pinnacle Award,” said MFBF President Mark Amato. “I want to say Thank You to everyone who supported our organization’s work this year and I’m looking forward to another busy year working with everyone to support Massachusetts agriculture.”
This award highlights the importance of the work that MFBF staff and leadership does across the Commonwealth and beyond. This meeting will take MFBF to the next level as MFBF’s delegate will vote to set new policy priorities for AFBF.
