KARL Program names new vice president


The board of directors of Kansas Agriculture and Rural Leadership has announced that Al Davis has been selected as vice president and assistant director of the KARL Program.

Davis, of Spring Hill, Kan., is a Class V graduate of the leadership program. Most recently, he has been education director for the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo. He has also worked as a youth development agent with K-State Research and Extension in Johnson County, and in the Pennsylvania Extension service.

As assistant director, Davis will assist in the planning, coordination and implementation of educational programs and fund development in Kansas, designed to enrich the skills of emerging leaders with agricultural or rural backgrounds and interests.

"It is great to be back," Davis said. "I have had the opportunity to be part of a lot of different leadership programs. The KARL program gave me a great opportunity as part of Class V to really explore my leadership style while learning more about the assets and challenges of Kansas. I am looking forward to helping others develop and improve their personal leadership skills and direct them towards their passion in their own communities."

His responsibilities will include fund raising, programming, public relations, participant recruitment and trainer/speaker relationship development for the 12 leadership seminars held for each KARL class and for the program's support network.

"Al Davis has strong experience in event coordination, relationship cultivation and organizational skills," said KARL, Inc. board chair Carolyn Harms. "He has a strong commitment to expanding and fostering rural development and a positive future for the agricultural industry through the KARL program."

Following a one- to two-year training cycle, the assistant director/vice president, with KARL board and university agreement, may advance to the position of director of the KARL program and president-CEO of KARL, Inc. according to the board's succession plan. The formal transition will allow Jack Lindquist, program director and KARL, Inc. president, to become director of the newly-created KARL Graduate Program. Lindquist has been director of the KARL Program since its inception in 1990.

KARL, Inc is a 501c3 not-for-profit educational organization based at Kansas State University acting as an in-kind donor of office space. All funding for programming and staff comes from contributions by individuals, businesses, organizations, foundations and corporations.
