Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/09/2014

Fifteen state agricultural leaders have been selected to participate in the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Institute class, which is a year-long leadership training program aimed at developing strong and effective county Farm Bureau leaders.

"Today's farmers and agriculturists must take the lead and be advocates for their farms and agribusinesses," said Dale Beaty, WFBF's director of training and leadership development. "The Institute gives participants the skills and confidence necessary to lead the future of farming and agriculture in their county Farm Bureau, local community, and beyond."

Members of the 2015 Farm Bureau Institute class include: Amanda Carlson, Hartland; Jayne Dalton, Endeavor; Erin Daluge, Janesville; Hannah Gerbitz, Milton; Kelsi Mayer, Monroe; Sarah Sacker, Browntown; Taylor Schuetz, Brooklyn; Janet Clark, Rosendale; Kendra Raymond, Fond du Lac; Kim VandenAvond, Green Bay; Susan Brugger, Rib Lake; William Litzer, Marathon; William Mueller, Wausau; Bradley Weber, Marshfield; and Randel Wokatsch, Marathon

The group will meet in January and focus on public speaking, etiquette, and identifying personality and leadership skills. Subsequent sessions will focus on advocacy training, local and state government, Farm Bureau structure and function, and national and international future ag issues.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Institute consists of five multi-day sessions that provide insights on issues important to agriculture, development of leadership and speaking skills, interaction with Farm Bureau leaders and staff and those in the governmental and agricultural sectors, and networking with other participants. The class will also participate in the Farm Bureau Leader Fly-in to Washington, D.C. in 2016.
