Leaders in Action 

Take Your Voice to the Next Level 

Our Leaders in Action program provides a road map for Indiana Farm Bureau members who want to take their leadership skills to the next level. You’ll leave with the tools to be a champion for yourself, your farm, your community, Farm Bureau and all of agriculture. 

The program meets four times around the state, culminating in a trip to Washington, D.C., where you put your new skills into action with national elected officials. Each in-state meeting features a new skills category: working with local elected officials, self-leadership, presentation skills and opportunities in Farm Bureau. 

The program runs February through September. The application period for the 2018 program will open in late fall 2017.
