National Grange to hold 146th Annual Convention Nov. 13 to 17 in Boise

By National Grange Press Release (11/9/12)

  NOVEMBER 11, 2012 --

The National Grange will hold its 146th Annual Convention Tuesday, Nov. 13 through Saturday, Nov. 17 in Boise.

The Grange, America’s oldest nonprofit organization advocating for agriculture and rural America, boasts a membership of more than 160,000 people and more than 2,500 local Grange chapters across the United States.

Delegates from the 34 State Granges, as well as Grange members from across the country, will gather to discuss more than 130 resolutions, passed in states and sent to the National Grange for consideration to become policy for the organization. Resolutions that pass then become policies for the National Grange, which then advocates on those measures to elected officials and government agencies for its members.

National Grange President Ed Luttrell will open the convention with his annual address at 2 p.m. (Mountain Time) Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the Boise Centre. Luttrell will focus his attention on the need for our nation’s legislators to pass fiscally responsible policies, to work toward resolution related to a Farm Bill and other key issues.

The address and other convention events is open to the public.

Grange members who attend the convention can receive the Seventh Degree, the Order’s highest level and enjoy fellowship with other Grange members. Everyone can participate in workshops and discussions on topics related to agriculture and rural America.

Several Granges will receive awards for community service, deaf awareness and other programs the Grange supports, and 31 Granges will be honored as Distinguished Granges on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
