Florida Farm Bureau Federation is seeking young agriculturists between the ages of 18-35 to apply for its 2014-2016 State Federation Young Farmers & Ranchers Leadership Group. The group consists of young men and women who are actively involved in their county Farm Bureaus and are interested in representing production agriculture and the farm families who make it successful.
The Young Farmers & Ranchers Leadership Group allows members to develop and refine their leadership abilities by focusing on personal growth, public speaking, media training, legislative awareness, issue advocacy, business development, networking and service leadership.
“The program is designed to prepare our next generation of farmers and ranchers with the leadership and confidence to represent agriculture at the local, state and national level,” said Young Farmers & Ranchers Coordinator Michael Rogalsky.
Farmers and ranchers interested in serving on the Leadership Group should submit an online application by Aug. 1. Applicants will be notified no later than Sept. 1 on their selection.
