AgForestry Leadership is now accepting applications for AgForestry Leadership Class 42.
Up to 24 people are selected each year for the 18-month program which consists of 11 seminars throughout Washington state, one week learning about national government in Washington D.C. and two weeks exploring trade, culture and government in a selected foreign country. The seminars cover communications, group dynamics and public speaking, working with the media, social services, state government, forestry, agriculture, the Columbia River system, crime and corrections and transportation.
More than 1,100 leaders in agriculture, forestry, fisheries and natural resources have participated in the leadership development program since it began in 1978, according to a news release.
Applications for AgForestry Leadership Class 42 will be accepted through April 30. The selection process will culminate in October with the first leadership seminar at Washington State University in Pullman.
Applications and nomination forms can be found online at AgForestry.org. Nominations are accepted throughout the year for potential future AgForestry leaders.
