Applicants Sought for ASA/Corteva Young Leader Program
Indiana Ag Connection - 07/08/2019
The American Soybean Association and Corteva Agriscience are seeking applicants for the 2019-20 ASA Young Leader Program. For more than 30 years, the program has identified and developed grower leaders that truly shape the future of agriculture.
The Leader initiative is a challenging and educational two-part training program. Phase I of the training will take place in Indianapolis in early December. It continues next February in San Antonio with training held in conjunction with the Commodity Classic
Convention and Trade Show.
"The Young Leader program has had a tremendous impact on agriculture and we are grateful to Corteva Agriscience for continuing to invest in our future leaders," said ASA President Davie Stephens. "The program encouraged and trained many soybean
farmers guiding the industry today. The Young Leader program is special because it focuses on building the grower's potential, while helping create meaningful and lifelong relationships with growers from across the U.S. and Canada."
Soybean grower couples and individuals are encouraged to apply for the program, which focuses on leadership and communication, the latest agricultural information and the development of a strong peer network.
ASA, its 26 state affiliates including the Grain Farmers of Ontario and Corteva Agriscience will work together to identify the top producers to represent their state as part of this program. One couple or individual per state will be selected to participate.
