The American Soybean Association and Pioneer Hi-Bred are seeking applicants for the 2013 Young Leader Program. TheYoung Leader Program is recognized throughout agriculture for its longstanding tradition of identifying and cultivating the producer-leaders who are shaping the U.S. soybean industry. 2013 marks the 29th year of the program.
“The Young Leader Program is an exceptional leadership training program,” said ASA President Steve Wellman. “The knowledge gained from this program can be put to use immediately–not only in business, but personally as well. Soybean producers who are looking to take on future leadership roles at the state and/or national level should pursue this training as the first step on their journey.”
The 2013 class of Young Leaders and their spouses will participate in a challenging and educational leadership experience Nov. 27-30, 2012 at Pioneer headquarters in Johnston, Iowa, and Feb. 26-March 2, 2013 in Kissimmee, Fla., coinciding with the annual Commodity Classic Convention and Trade Show.
