National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson addressed campers on July 14 at the 2011 All-States Leadership Camp in Bailey, Colo. As a former All-State Leadership Camp participant himself, he shared much of the organization’s rich history. “The founders of this organization understood some very important concepts when they developed the Farmers Union triangle,” said Johnson. He said that the triangle of education, legislation, and cooperation is the foundation of everything we do, stand for, and believe. Johnson stressed the importance of the Farmers Union education program. While All-States is the end of the campers’ journeys in the youth program, he told them, “What happens as a result of that is not the end of the line. This is the beginning of the rest of your life.” To learn more about All-States Leadership Camp, click here.
