2019 Farm Bureau FUSION Conference

Q: The breakout sessions have different tracks. Do I have to stick with the same track the whole conference?
A: The tracks are designed to help guide attendees to areas of their interest, but in no way obligates them to participate in the same track during the FUSION. For example, if a collegiate member wants to focus their FUSION experience on building up their Collegiate Farm Bureau Chapter, they would attend all of the collegiate breakout sessions. However, if they also had an interest in the Leadership track, they are more than welcome to personalize their breakout session experience! 

Q: Does the hotel have a shuttle to and from the airport?
A: No, there will not be shuttles available from the airport to the hotels.

Q: What are the ideal travel days for the conference? 
A: Our suggestion is to arrive on Friday afternoon and to depart on Tuesday morning. The Grand Finale Event will conclude Monday evening around 10:30 p.m. If members or states drive to the conference, they could plan to leave after the event is over. 

Q:  Why is there a cost associated with some tours but not with others?
A: Depending on the location and activities, some tours are more expensive than others. Many of the tours and trainings are included in your registration cost. Tours with additional costs are noted as such on the registration site. 

Q: Are any and all Farm Bureau Members invited to attend this conference?
A: Yes!

Q: Can register on-site?
A: No. You must register for the conference online before February 22, 2019. 

Q: Will FUSION be held every year? 
A: The Farm Bureau FUSION Conference is held every other year (in odd numbered years). In even years, the YF&R Leadership Conference is offered (various locations). Women’s Leadership and the P&E programs will also be providing specific trainings opportunities in even-numbered years.

Q: What is the cancellation policy?                                                                                                                                A: There will be a $50 fee processed for cancellations prior to Feb. 22, 2019. No refunds on cancelled registrations will be made after Feb. 22. Transfers of like registrations can be made between attendees to avoid the cancellation fee. Transfers can be made until 12:00 p.m. (noon) Eastern Time on March 1. Transfers must be completed by whoever paid for the registration (i.e. Individual or state Farm Bureau Coordinator) and be emailed to fusion@fb.org. Onsite registrations will not be accepted.
