Join a like-minded group of agricultural writers and communicators!

The MFWBA brings together journalists and communicators from across the province to learn about and debate all aspects of Manitoba agriculture. Membership is open to anyone whose occupation or business involves agriculture.

When you join the MFWBA, you also become a member of the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation (CFWF), a national umbrella group. Members can network at the CFWF annual conference every fall, and receive a national newsletter to keep updated on events from across Canada. Part of the conference involves the opportunity to enter the CFWF annual awards competition.

Your MFWBA membership also gives you contacts around the world. With your membership, you’re also part of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ). The IFAJ publishes a newsletter, organizes an annual congress in a different country each year, and maintains a database of contacts and journalists to help you with stories or work exchanges.
