Texas

Texas Agricultural Lifetime Leadership Program is seeking applicants for its new class, which will begin in July 2012. TALL is a two-year leadership development program managed by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. Applications for the newest class, Class XIII, are due March 15. Application forms may be found online at http://tall.tamu.edu.

"Texas agriculture has a need for individuals who can lead our industry as it faces new and unique challenges. These individuals will provide the leadership, insight and direction to ensure agricultural viability for the future, "said Jim Mazurkiewicz, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension leadership program director.

The program invests 455 hours of intensive training per person in seminars, speakers and domestic and international study trips over two years, Mazurkiewicz added. Class XIII will travel to Brazil.

The program is equivalent to the time spent obtaining a master's degree in agriculture. The typical class size is about 25, and tuition is $2,500.

Mazurkiewicz said, "The goal of the program is to create a strong network within Texas agriculture by having representation from all agricultural industries and geographic regions."

Participants include traditional crop producers, ranchers, bankers and attorneys, as well as those who work in lumber, food processing, agricultural corporations and horticultural industries.
