Applications open for OFC Directors, 2023 to 2025
28th May 2021 by OFC Press Team
The Oxford Farming Conference (OFC) is a charity and a limited company. The conference itself, which runs in early January every year, has become ever more high-profile within the farming industry, but more importantly to wider audiences and stakeholders. The OFC's mission is to 'Inform, Challenge and Inspire'.
The conference is designed and run by the OFC Council, a secretariat team and a marketing professional agency. You can view the Council at www.ofc.org.uk
The OFC Council is made up of 11 voluntary directors, one of whom is the treasurer. With the exception of the treasurer, each director serves a three-year term. In other words, the make-up of the Council changes every year, with three new directors joining and three retiring. Its members are drawn from a range of agricultural, agri-business, land management and food industry areas.
The chairmanship of the OFC changes each year too, with the Chairman being chosen by the Council from among the three directors serving their third year.

The OFC is a charity with a remit to educate and transfer knowledge in the agricultural sector. As part of our charitable undertakings, the OFC supports young people to attend the conference and offers a bursary program to first-time attendees.
We are now inviting expressions of interest for joining the Council for the 2023-2025 conferences; applicants MUST have attended the conference in the past for their application to be considered. The positions are wholly honorary but reasonable expenses are reimbursed.
Interviews will be held online in late-August/September.
