The deadline to apply for Nebraska LEAD (Leadership Education/Action Development) Group 34 is set for June 15.
The website for the Nebraska LEAD Program says it began 32 years ago in an effort to develop agricultural leaders who will advocate for the heart of Nebraska's economy--agriculture.
In addition to monthly three-day seminars throughout Nebraska from mid-September through early April each year, Nebraska LEAD fellows 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, and much more.
The Nebraska LEAD Program is designed to prepare the spokespersons, problem-solvers and decision makers for Nebraska and its agricultural industry.
Many individuals who have participated in the program have gone on to become members of commodity boards, extension boards, local school boards and local church councils.
