Benefits of Being a Grange Member

  • Enjoy a direct voice in the state legislative process

    • Involvement in the legislative process has been an important aspect of Grange activity since the organization's inception in 1867.  Our primary legislative objective is to represent the views of rural residents and the agriculture community.  Our views become Grange policy from the grass roots, through a "bottom up" democratic process.  Each year our policies are summarized and published in the Legislative Handbook, which guides our work in the Legislature.  We encourage all Grangers to get involved and make their voices heard.
