Wheat advocates selected for WOLF training program
The National Association of Wheat Growers Foundation recently announced the members of its 2012 Wheat Organization Leaders of the Future leadership training class. WOLF is designed as an advanced leadership program for state wheat grower leaders who will soon become members of the NAWG Board of Directors, though other individuals are welcome to apply. The goal of the program is to provide a solid foundation of knowledge about NAWG and about board leadership.
Training sessions focus on the responsibilities of Board members, the wheat industry's structure and leadership skills like meeting management and conflict resolution. Other sessions include information about effective communication with the media and Capitol Hill stakeholders. The WOLF program is put on annually as a regular Foundation program. It is generously sponsored by Bayer CropScience, and Bayer representatives will join the growers throughout the program's sessions.
Members of the 2012 WOLF class include: Tyler Anderson, Pine Bluff, Wyo.; Caroline Brauer, Lincoln, Neb.; Dayton Christensen, Big Springs, Neb.; Clark Hamilton, Ririe, Idaho; Ryan McCormick, Kremlin, Mont.; Raymond Parrish, Hunter, Okla.; James Parsons, Ducor, Calif.; and Marvin Schlatter, Hutchinson, Kan.
