The Nebraska Leadership Education/Action Development Group 33 is currently accepting fellowship applications for men and women involved in production agriculture or agribusiness.
According to Terry Hejny, Nebraska LEAD program director, up to 30 men and women who demonstrate leadership potential will be chosen from five geographic districts across the state.
Nebraska LEAD participants will take part in three-day seminars across the state from mid-September through early April each year. The Fellows will also participate in a 10-day National Study/Travel Seminar and a two week International Study/Travel Seminar.
Seminar themes include leadership assessment and potential, natural resources and energy, agricultural policy, leadership through communication, our political process, global perspectives, nuclear energy, social issues, understanding and developing leadership skills, agribusiness and marketing, advances in health care and the resources and people of Nebraska's Panhandle, Hejny said.
In its 32nd year, the program is operated by the Nebraska Agricultural Leadership Council, a nonprofit organization, in collaboration with the University of Nebraska's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and in cooperation with Nebraska colleges and universities, business and industry, and individuals throughout the state.
Applications are due no later than June 15 and are available via e-mail from the Nebraska LEAD Program. Please contact Shana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
