Kansas Farm Bureau is seeking members for the 2017 Class of Leadership KFB. Open to any voting member of the organization, this program was designed to surface leaders who wish to not only influence change in agriculture, but in counties and communities across the state.
Previous classes have traveled to five in-state locations and Washington, D.C. during the year-long program. The curriculum presents a variety of experiential learning through tours, conversations with industry leaders, as well as personal leadership and communication development experiences. Each session provides the opportunity to visit agriculture and related economic drivers in the state as well as the chance to gain new understanding and skills about their personal leadership style, communication or conflict resolution. The final capstone session, held in Washington, D.C., allows members to visit personally with Legislators, leaders and learn about issues facing Kansas from a national perspective.
