ABF State Delegates

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 seibshoosierhoney@yahoo.com.


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 programs.
  • Present during educational programs.
  • 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 and on the ABF website, email the event details to the ABF headquarters office at info@abfnet.org.


Be sure to attend our bi-monthly virtual meetings to stay up-to-date on all the ways ABF is working to connect our members with yours and how you can do the same!
