Step Up and Be a Leader

Have you been thinking lately that you should get more involved in your community, your state, and/or the agriculture industry?  If you answered yes to any of these, you should apply for the ASA/Dupont Young Leader Program!

The ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program is a great opportunity for soybean growers and their spouses who are interested in developing their leadership skills and knowledge of the soybean industry.  The knowledge gained from the program is beneficial both on the farm and off.  This program is open to soybean farmers in the twenty-six soybean growing states and Canada.  One couple or individual per state will be chosen to participate.  There are two phases of the training:

  • Part I is held at Dupont Pioneer's headquarter in Johnston, Iowa November 27-30, 2012
  • Part II is held in conjunction with Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Florida February 26-March 2, 2013

The program is managed and coordinated by Dupont Pioneer and the American Soybean Association.

My Farmer and I were the 2012 ASA/Dupont Young Leaders for Iowa this past year and had a great time! We both have been involved in leadership programs in the past and weren't sure if we would really gain any new information.  But after the first class session we both felt motivated to do more and tell our story of agriculture, and that is the main reason I actually started this blog.  Besides gaining leadership skills, social media insights, and soybean industry updates, we also gained a lot of great friends.  The networking that we both gained from this program will last us a lifetime.  It is unbelievable how well we got to know the other members of the class and the insight we gained about agriculture from across the United States and Canada.

So if you raise soybeans, are interested in getting more involved, would like to increase your leadership skills and gain new friends, you should apply today for the 2013 ASA/Dupont Young Leaders program!  Applications are now being accepted through October 1.

If you have any questions about the ASA/Dupont Young Leaders program be sure to ask me!

  28. One other issue is when you are in a predicament where you would not have a co-signer then you may genuinely wish to try to exhaust all of your financing options. You can get many grants or loans and other grants that will give you finances to assist with school expenses. Thank you for the post.
