Let’s Grow Together
Each state having ABF members may appoint a State Delegate to serve as a liaison between ABF and its state association and local clubs. State Delegates are responsible for communicating ABF's legislative initiatives to the state association and local clubs and for providing access to state legislators. Each State Delegate also acts as a membership coordinator to ensure ABF's membership campaigns are communicated to the state association and local clubs.
If you are interested in serving as a State Delegate on behalf of your state, please contact State Delegates Committee Chair Debbie Seib at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional opportunities may include:
- Submit stories (either local or state) to ABF for the ABF E-Buzz newsletter or ABF Quarterly magazine.
- Suggest topics for educational webinars.
- Present during a webinar.
- Serve on an ABF committee.
ABF Will Promote Your State and Local Meetings
To get your state and local meetings, conferences and classes listed in the ABF Quarterly magazine, download our State Meeting Information Form and return it to ABF Membership Coordinator Sherrell Bailey at email@example.com.
