Leadership Academy Session 2

Jan 24, 2022 - Jan 26, 2022   All Day

Leadership Academy is a two-session program that prepares state corn leaders to lead their respective state grower associations and check-off boards.  The program will focus on various aspects of leadership training and key agricultural issues in a world with ever-changing consumer and environmental concerns.

Women and Mentors Retreat

Jun 27, 2022 - Jun 28, 2022   All Day

Location: St. Louis, Missouri

This program focuses on creating a diverse network of individuals who want to see more female engagement in agriculture. We are creating this network in two distinct ways: The in-person Women and Mentors Retreat and pairing mentors and mentees at the retreat to work on their goals together during the following year (and beyond). This network is already filled with people who can act as an incredible resource for each other. We look forward to building on this strong network for the future!   Women who would like to grow their skills and get more involved at the state and national level are encouraged to apply as mentees.

Our in-person session will be held June 27-28, 2022. If you apply early, you’ll also gain access to our quarterly lunch and learn...
