UNL CropWatch Sept. 3, 2010: Nebraska LEAD Announces 2010-2012 Fellows

Sept. 3, 2010

Nebraska LEAD Group XXX participants were announced by Terry Hejny, director, Nebraska LEAD (Leadership Education/Action Development) Program.

The newest members of Nebraska's premier two-year agricultural leadership development program are all involved in production agriculture and/or agribusiness in Nebraska, Hejny said.

The two-year program will begin in September. LEAD Fellows will participate in 12 monthly three-day seminars across Nebraska, a 10-day national study/travel seminar and a two- to three-week international study/travel seminar. The goal of the program is to develop problem solvers, decision makers and spokespersons for agriculture and Nebraska.

Seminars focus on agriculture as well as business, industry, labor, economics, public policy, religions, politics, governments, history and other areas designed to develop leaders through exposure to a broad array of current topics and issues and how they interrelate.

The Nebraska LEAD Program is operated by the non-profit Nebraska Agricultural Leadership Council in cooperation with UNL’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and 10 other institutions of higher education throughout Nebraska.
