The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association, the American Soybean Association, and Pioneer, a DuPont Business, are currently accepting applications for the 2012 ASA/DuPont Young Leader program.
Interested participants should apply on-line at www.soygrowers.com/dyl.
The program is designed for soybean growers - married or single - who are interested in developing their leadership skills. Spouses are included in all aspects of the program and the knowledge gained is beneficial in any setting- whether on the farm or off. Young Leaders become valuable, active members of agricultural organizations and volunteer groups at state and local levels.
Interested applicants must commit to attending two phases of training. Part I will be held Nov. 29-Dec. 2, 2011 at Pioneer headquarters in Johnston, IA, and Part II will be held Feb. 28-March 3, 2012 in Nashville, TN.
Minnesota's deadline to apply is August 26.
