Fellowship applications for Nebraska LEAD (Leadership Education/Action Development) 41 are now available for men and women involved in production agriculture or agribusiness. 

“Up to 30 motivated men and women with demonstrated leadership potential will be selected from five geographic districts across our state,” says Terry Hejny, Nebraska LEAD program director.  

“In order to uphold the integrity and the mission of LEAD, our board of directors has adopted policy that will help ensure the safety of our LEAD participants and all of those associated with the program during this global pandemic."  

In addition to monthly three-day seminars throughout Nebraska from mid-September through early April each year, Nebraska LEAD fellows also participate in a 10-day national study-travel seminar and a two-week international study-travel seminar. 

Seminar themes include leadership assessment and potential, natural resources and energy, agricultural policy, leadership through communication, Nebraska’s political process, global perspectives, nuclear energy, social issues, understanding and developing leadership skills, agribusiness and marketing, advances in health care, and the resources and people of Nebraska’s Panhandle, Hejny says. 

The Nebraska LEAD program is designed to prepare spokespersons, problem-solvers and decision-makers for Nebraska and its agricultural industry.
