WFB would like to congratulate April Clayton of the Chelan/Douglas County Farm Bureau on being selected for AFBF’s 2017-2018 Partners in Advocacy Leadership (PAL) program.
Clayton will join nine other participants from around the country as they learn to be premier advocates for the agricultural industry.
The American Farm Bureau Federation created the PAL program to create advocates for agriculture and accelerate personal development for engaged members of our organization. The program is also made possible by sponsorships from Monsanto and the Farm Credit Foundation.
The PAL program focuses on taking young farmers and ranchers, age 30 to 45, who have already begun their personal development journey and moving them to the next level. The two-year program offers a high-level, executive-type curriculum that provides participants with unique opportunities to represent agriculture in the media, on speaking circuits or in testimonial arenas. Program graduates are prepared to step forward and promote issues important to those in the farm-to-consumer food chain.
The PAL program is designed to help today’s agricultural leaders accelerate their engagement abilities and solidify their role as ADVOCATEs for agriculture. The PAL program equips agricultural leaders with executive-level skills to become effective advocates in their communities, their agricultural organizations and in government.
