Application Deadline for
(Leadership, Education and Development)
Deadline is August 31st
The L.E.A.D. program, a 14-month adult leadership initiative, was designed to create an outstanding, highly motivated group of agricultural leaders in Wyoming. Up to 18 fellows will be selected to participate in the program which begins in November. The program includes eight in-state seminars, a national study seminar in Washington, D.C., and an international trade mission. Participants will devote approximately 40 days to the study seminars and special project assignments.
The educational seminars are presented by qualified professionals and industry experts and cover topics including communication, policy and decision making, entrepreneurship, marketing, international trade, government and political affairs, resource management, and economic development.
L.E.A.D. fellows pay a tuition fee to participate in the program and are chosen based on their leadership potential, communication skills, commitment to participate, and other criteria.
A total of 203 fellows have graduated from the L.E.A.D. program since its inception in 1984 by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to establish a rural leadership program. The program is a partnership of the Wyoming Business Council and the Wyoming Agricultural Leadership Council.
