ALMS Ag Leadership Program

It may not be difficult to find opportunities for leadership within our own lives, whether at home, school, or church; however, you might find it difficult to find leadership programs specifically designed for agribusiness professionals in our local area. The Auglaize, Logan, Mercer, and Shelby County Farm Bureaus would like to change that! This spring we are introducing a new program called the ALMS Ag. Leadership Program.

This five-session program, will focus on important topics we face today as agricultural professionals. The flyer details the sessions we have planned including leadership development, public policy/engagement, communication, and emerging agricultural issues.  To enhance these learning sessions, we have included tours centered on local agribusiness, the government of Ohio, and a local area agriculture travel tour. 

Cost and registration

We ask that you consider participating in this exciting program and/or offering the opportunity to your employees. The cost to participate will only be $125 per participant and the program will be limited to 30 participants.  This cost can be paid by the individual or the employer. Participants must reside in one of the four counties. Participant registrations are due by Friday, March 10, 2023.

We truly appreciate your time and dedication to agriculture in our area. We look forward to discussing this exciting program with you. Please contact the Farm Bureau office with any questions at 877-775-7642 or Organization Director [email protected].

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

Available scholarships
I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
