WOLF is designed as an advanced leadership program for state wheat grower leaders who will soon become part of the NAWG Board of Directors. The program focuses on the responsibilities of Board members, governance, media relations and lobbying.
The 2009 program will take place immediately preceeding the NAWG and U.S. Wheat Associates winter meetings, to be held in Washington, D.C., in February.
The WOLF program is an annual event generously sponsored by Bayer CropScience and put on by the NAWG Foundation.
"It's always exciting to see a new crop of wheat leaders rising up to the national level," said Daren Coppock, NAWG's chief executive officer, on the announcement. "This is a wonderful program we are happy to partner with Bayer CropScience to offer our state directors every year."
