A note from our President :)

Thanks to C.J. Fleenor, our 2011 NYFEA President, for this blog post about Ag’s Promise!

2010 marked the first year that I had ever attended Agriculture’s Promise.  One word can summarize the entire experience…WOW!  The event is jam-packed with activities, all in two tiny days.  However, the event means more to the attendees than just personal development.  The event is one that fulfills a mission…to help individuals reach their full potential and so much more.

Agriculture’s Promise serves to carry out the dreams and hopes of the next generation of agriculture, in addition to making a difference for generations to come.  The event revolves around two primary events:  To collaborate and hone in on key issues affecting our generation in agriculture through focus groups, and to bring these messages to Capitol Hill and beyond, in order to express our views, challenges and opportunities.    However, the personal development and leadership training is invaluable!  Our generation is faced with unlimited potential, and Agriculture’s Promise serves as an opportunity to express our potential as a unified voice, while growing and building our personal self worth.

I encourage all of you to take a chance and seize the opportunity that is presented before us.  Agriculture’s promise has served as a life-changing event for me, and I hope that it affects all of you in the same way!  The opportunity to bring a unified message to key members of congress, in addition to our law-makers from our home states is invaluable.  The event is one that can truly make a difference in our generation and the paths we take in agriculture.   I look forward to seeing each of you April 10-12 in Washington, D.C.!
