The council is comprised of 6-10 rural female leaders from around the country.
Once on the AWAC, members provide input on the training materials and educational resources developed for women by AgriSafe. AWAC is also charged with assisting AgriSafe to design, launch and promote educational initiatives that can reduce farm related illness, injury and fatalities.
