Applicants being sought for ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program

The American Soybean Association (ASA) and Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, are seeking applicants for the 2009 Young Leader Program. The Young Leader Program is recognized throughout agriculture for its longstanding tradition of identifying and cultivating the producer leaders who are shaping the U.S. soybean industry.

"The Young Leader Program is an exceptional leadership training program," said John Hoffman, ASA President. "The instructors and program content are of the highest quality. This program provides information that the participant can start using immediately, not only in business, but personally as well."

The 2009 class of Young Leaders and their spouses will participate in a challenging and educational leadership experience December 1-4, 2008 at Pioneer headquarters in Johnston, Iowa, and then complete training Feb. 24-28, 2009 in Grapevine, Tex., in conjunction with the annual Commodity Classic. This seminar offers the opportunity for participants to enhance their leadership skills, as well as meet and learn from other Young Leaders from around the United States and Canada.

Application forms for the 2009 Young Leader Program, sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred, have been mailed to all ASA members. Forms may also be obtained by calling (800) 688-7692, ext. 1328, or on the web at www.SoyGrowers.com/dyl. Soybean producers are encouraged to apply or nominate another producer who would be an excellent candidate for the program. Information on guidelines to participate in the program is available at ASA’s website or by calling the ASA program manager. All applications and nominations should be returned to ASA by Monday, September 1, 2008. One Young Leader couple will be selected from each of ASA’s state affiliates.
