"ACE" in the Hole

December 8, 1989

The State Women's Committee establishes the Agricultural Cultural Exchange (ACE) Ambassador Program.

The ACE Ambassador program funds foreign trips to various parts of the world for 10 farm couples. Upon their return, couples present programs at district meetings to share with others what they had learned.

The program is created following Carolyn Hegel’s trip to Western Europe with AFBF’s National Women’s Committee, where Hegel is surprised to be learning from the European farmers and not teaching American farming techniques.
