NOFA-NY members, please join us on Zoom to help shape our 2024 policy resolutions! This is the second meeting to discuss and finalize policy resolutions to advance for 2024. Your perspectives and expertise can help us create strong and meaningful policy resolutions that support our shared vision for a just and resilient farming system grounded in a diverse community now and for future generations.
The process: Each year NOFA-NY members vote on policy resolutions that guide the advocacy work of our organization. Proposed policy resolutions are drafted and formally approved by the member-based Policy Committee and the Board of Directors in the fall. The approved resolutions are then sent to our membership and posted on our website before a membership vote occurs at the annual meeting. A 2/3 majority vote is necessary to pass a resolution. Current members are encouraged to submit proposals for policy resolutions to be considered by the Policy Committee and Board of Directors. View all policy resolutions from years past here (PDF).
If you are unable to join us for this meeting but would like to share your policy ideas or if you have any questions about the resolution process, please contact Katie Baildon, Policy Manager:
