Applications are now being accepted for Class 11 of the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program (CALP). Farmers, ranchers, growers and individuals working in allied businesses and organizations are encouraged to apply.
The Ag Leadership Program, operated by the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program (CALP), is considered to be one of the premier leadership development experiences in the United States. Nearly 300 men and women have participated in the program and are influential leaders and dedicated volunteers in the agriculture industry, communities and other areas.
CALP is an intensive 18-month program composed of monthly seminars delivered by Colorado's agricultural industry. Fellows also participate in 10 days of national travel seminars and a 10-day international travel seminar. Seminars provide a comprehensive curriculum focusing on a variety of agricultural and leadership development subject matter.
"Ag leadership is an incredible educational opportunity for emerging or mid-career leaders in agriculture," said CALP board president Representative Jerry Sonnenberg. "Agriculture is the cornerstone of this state and the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program will help ensure its continued success; we must provide tools to develop leaders that will help shape the future of agriculture in Colorado."
CALP invests approximately $11,000 per fellow to participate in the Ag Leadership Program. The costs are underwritten by individual and industry donations.
