Participants Chosen for the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program

Thirty participants have been chosen for the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program (CALP) to comprise class 12.

The eighteen month program, led by the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program, is an intensive study of agriculture worldwide that equips people in the agriculture industry to become leaders in their fields.  “Participants will collaborate with others, and establish mentoring relationships with professionals serving agriculture and rural communities,” said Angie Cue, Executive Director of the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program.

“Given the critical issues facing agriculture today, there is a need to provide an intensive leadership program to develop a new generation of leaders,” said State Representative Jerry Sonnenberg, Board President of the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program.

The course focuses on communications, government, policy, economics, social & cultural issues and change management.   Through the program, leaders will have the opportunity to travel internationally, nationally and statewide to extend their knowledge on the global agriculture industry.

The first session will begin in September.
