FFVA Now Accepting Applications for ELDP Class 9

FFVA is accepting applications for Class 9 of its Emerging Leader Development Program. The deadline for submission is March 22.

Launched in 2011, the program identifies and develops leaders to be strong advocates for Florida agriculture. The sessions provide a wealth of information on the many issues facing the industry and equips members to communicate about agriculture. Ultimately, ELDP graduates can get involved to strengthen the future of specialty crop agriculture and grassroots engagement in FFVA and other industry organizations.

The yearlong program includes seminars provided by FFVA staff members and other experts on current issues, meetings with legislators and state officials in Tallahassee, tours of venues to study environmental issues and water management, and visits to specialty crop production areas in Florida and California. Class 9’s first session will be in July.

To apply, fill out the application form and the written agreement form and send directly to Sonia.Tighe@ffva.com.
