Ag Leadership Accepting Applications for Class 45

The California Agricultural Leadership Foundation (CALF) is now accepting applications for Class 45. Growers, farmers, ranchers and individuals working in allied businesses and organizations are encouraged to apply.

The Ag Leadership Program, operated by the California Agricultural Leadership Foundation (CALF), is considered to be one of the premier leadership development experiences in the United States. More than 1,200 men and women have participated in the program and are influential leaders and active volunteers in the agriculture industry, communities and other areas.
 

The 16-month program, from October 2014 to January 2016, is composed of monthly seminars delivered by Cal Poly Pomona, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Fresno State, UC Davis and other academic institutions.

Fellows also participate in a 10-day national travel seminar and a 15-day international travel seminar. Seminars provide a comprehensive curriculum focusing on a variety of subject matter.

CALF invests approximately $45,000 per fellow to participate in the Ag Leadership Program. The costs are underwritten by individual and industry donations.
