The theme of the conference is “Discover Your Legacy” and to help deliver that theme is keynote speaker James Lawrence, who’s broken several Guinness World Records.
The Young Ag Professionals Winter Leadership Experience is an annual conference with the opportunity for young professionals to build personal and professional skills, network with agricultural leaders and learn to make a difference in their community, Farm Bureau and agriculture. Conference sessions cover topics ranging from traditional agriculture and niche farming/marketing to advocacy and consumer education topics.
Agriculture has many faces, just like Young Ag Professionals. We are young adults, single and married, who share a passion for farming, rural living, and/or local foods. We’re full and part-time farmers, Extension agents, teachers, consumer educators, media reporters, livestock and equine enthusiasts, beekeepers, green industry employees, gardeners, foodies and more! We invite you to join us for leadership experience, building personal and professional skills, networking with agricultural leaders, and making a difference in our communities, Farm Bureau and agriculture. Join us for a time of personal and professional development, meeting other young professionals from around Ohio, fun, food and fellowship!
