The American Soybean Association in partnership with DuPont Pioneer Monday announced applications are now available for the 2014 Young Leader Program.
ASA and DuPont say the Young Leader program allows participants to strengthen and build upon leadership skills, meet and learn from other young leaders and expand their agricultural knowledge.
The two-part program begins at Pioneer's headquarters in Johnston, Iowa, Nov. 19-22, 2013, and will continue Feb. 25-March 1, 2014 in San Antonio at the annual Commodity Classic Convention and Trade Show.
"For three decades, ASA/DuPont Young Leaders have participated in training and developed peer networks that have enabled them to better serve and represent their national, state and local agricultural industry organizations," says ASA President Danny Murphy.
"Additionally, the training has a 'real-world' factor, providing a significant impact on their business as well," he says.
Applications will be accepted online beginning June 3 at www.SoyGrowers.com/dyl.
