What’s New at azfb.org? July 3, 2013

By Julie Murphree, Arizona Farm Bureau

In case you haven’t already noticed, Arizona Farm Bureau has a new look and feel to its website, www.azfb.org. But more than that, our hub for online communication via azfb.org has more functionality.


If you’re a frequent visitor of azfb.org, you’ve already noticed that we’ve updated our site to accommodate our growing cadre of interactivity on the web while still maintaining our ongoing commitment to provide you with the latest news and intelligence about Arizona agriculture.

Our updated website, azfb.org


Simplicity is Key

Navigation of the updated website was designed to keep you moving in and out of our pages with ease. For our members, we’ve also made it easier to renew your membership. And, for potential members, we’ve made it easier to join our family online. Additionally, to help you stay connected with us on our social media channels, we’ve positioned all social media icons (buttons) up front. While we continue to have a running list of featured articles, we also post articles in the upper right that are significant to our public policy issues, educational features and information for our retail farmers.


Our “Events” section of the website is much more robust than before. The monthly calendar will highlight Farm Bureau events and can get county specific. You can view in either a calendar or as a list too. Additionally, if you have Farm Bureau-related events or an event industry event contact us and we’ll share on our calendar. Your contact person for calendar information is Melissa Hogben at email hidden; JavaScript is required or give her a call at 480.635.3616.


Still to Come

In the coming weeks and months, we hope to roll out more information related to “Ag & Your Life,” county information and additional program information. In the “Public Policy” section of the website, we hope to keep you up-to-date on local, state and national issues in as timely of a manner as possible. You’ll find information on our policy development process and the current issues we’re addressing based on recommendations from our commodity advisory committee members.


Finally, we will be rolling out a “Members Only” section of the website in the coming months to address issues, information and intelligence we intend to keep exclusive to our members. You’re important to us and we want to make a special effort to provide you with data that’s exclusive to the family. Plus, we want your feedback!


“The Voice,” Our Newest Blog

Additionally, we’ve launched a new blog (web log) for azfb.org. This weekly blog will address policy issues and articles specific to Arizona agriculture. Often we’ll profile our state’s farmers and ranchers on this blog.


Our mission as it relates to “content” on behalf of our members and Arizona agriculture is to give a voice to the industry that engages, informs, inspires and leads. As a result, leadership in Farm Bureau has requested that we keep a regular conversation going with engaged audiences inside agriculture and those outside of agriculture.


If you want to contribute to this weekly blog, contact Julie Murphree at email hidden; JavaScript is required. Or, you can call her at 480.635.3607.
