Farm Bureau Recognizes Graduates of Partners in Advocacy Leadership Class

The American Farm Bureau Federation recently honored ten leaders in agriculture as graduates of the organization’s 11th Partners in Advocacy Leadership class. PAL was designed to help agricultural leaders accelerate their engagement abilities and solidify their roles as advocates for agriculture.

AFBF President Zippy Duvall says, “We look forward to seeing how their dedication to advocating on agricultural issues will continue to benefit rural communities at the local, state and national level.”

The training involves four learning modules designed to develop specific advocacy skills, including storytelling, policy development and stakeholder engagement. The modules build on one another over the two years of the program and include intense, in-person, hands-on training. Applications for PAL Class 12 will be accepted through March 25 and must be approved by the applicant’s state Farm Bureau president. To be eligible for the program, candidates must be between the ages of 30 and 45, with demonstrated leadership skills.

Graduates of PAL Class 11 are: Seth Earl, Michigan; Jason Fellows, Idaho; Laura Haffner, Kansas; Rachel Harmann, Wisconsin; Eileen Jensen, New York; Russ Kohler, Utah; Heather Lifsey, North Carolina; Ben Menges, Arizona; Megan Richner, Missouri; and Dana Stewart, Arkansas.
