This new and exciting program is designed to provide educational opportunities for the next generation of Michigan corn farmers. Topics include agronomy, technology, farm management, the work of the National Corn Growers Association and one topic picked by the class. There will also be plenty of time provided for networking and an optional international tour (for an additional fee). The material will be in-depth, challenging and rewarding.
The program consists of five sessions. The four sessions in Michigan will begin with an evening reception followed by 1.5 days of educational presentations. The session in Washington, DC will be approximately 3 days. Details for the optional international trip will be provided to the class at a later date. The registration fee of $300 covers all lodging and meals for the first five sessions.
Participants may be nominated by their peers or they may nominate themselves. Upon nomination an individual will be notified and sent an application form. Applications are due by September 29, 2017. Application review will take place in October and participants will be notified in November. The first session of the program will take place in January 2018.
