Recruitment open for Kansas Environmental Leadership Program


Recruitment is under way for the Class of 2012, Kansas Environmental Leadership Program. This will be the 12th class since 1999. More than 240 local leaders throughout Kansas have participated in the program, with 13 in the Class of 2011.

Emphasis is placed on including representatives from all facets of Kansas life: agriculture, industry, government, and both urban and rural communities. K-State Research and Extension agents are asked to nominate producers who will be future agricultural leaders and who will benefit from leadership and environmental awareness. Participation by two citizens from the same area is especially encouraged. For example, a county or district agent could attend with a local producer, landowner, or governmental official. Watershed Protection and Restoration Strategy project team members will also benefit from the KELP experience.

KELP focuses on training participants in leadership skills and in water-related issues. Five three-day sessions are held, with the first session in February and the final session in October.

The five 2012 session locations and dates are Hays (Feb. 8 to 10), Topeka (March 7 to 9 and Oct. 24 to 25), Wichita (May 9 to 11), and Manhattan (July 11 to 13). Each session begins at noon on Wednesday and ends by noon on Friday. Additionally, webinars will be scheduled to supplement the KELP curriculum.

Tuition is partially underwritten by a 319 grant, leaving $950 the responsibility of the participant. All meals, lodging (double occupancy), bus trips, activities, and materials are covered. Each person is only responsible for getting to and from each meeting and for time away from work to attend.

KELP training qualifies for academic credit and continuing education credits. More information is available on the KELP website at www.ksre.ksu.edu/kelp/p.aspx or by calling Brandi Nelson at 785-532-3828.
