The National Farmers Union is organized regionally. Each Region holds an annual convention where regional officers are elected and resolutions brought forward by members of the region are debated. Resolutions that are passed at the regional level are then debated and voted on at the annual National Convention. One board member from each region serves as the Regional Coordinator. Region 5 comprises the province of Manitoba.

Please learn more about the Region 5 convention in the Convention Call Letter. Join 2020’s convention by registering using this registration form. Fill it out and email it to nfu@nfu.ca. We’ll send you the instructions on how to join the online meeting.

The convention will be publicly livestreamed at our YouTube channel and available afterwards to watch. We hope you can join!
