The lifetime leadership program is a two-year leadership development program managed by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Applications for the newest class, Class XIV, are due Saturday, March 15. Application forms are online at http://tall.tamu.edu.
The program invests 455 hours of intensive training per person in seminars, speakers, and domestic and international study trips over two years. It is equivalent to the time spent obtaining a master’s degree in agriculture.
The typical class size is about 25, and tuition is $3,000.
Participants include traditional crop producers, ranchers, bankers, and attorneys, as well as those who work in lumber, food processing, agricultural corporations, and horticultural industries.
