AALP Class 13 North American Study Tour - June 5/6, 2010


In exactly one month Class 13 of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program will be loading a bus and embarking on their North American Study Tour – July 5 – 15, 2010. As with all AALP seminars and study tours, a central theme and set objectives will shape the Class’ agenda and curriculum. This tour’s theme and objectives are centered on examining and enhancing the class’ understanding of Canadian/American relations, including varying approaches to agriculture, trade, development, resources and social policies.

Tour stops throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Washington, DC will present one-of-a-kind, eye opening experiences for many of the participants, exposing them to a wide array of US political leaders and policy makers, state of the art agricultural operations, different cultures and historical sites. Stops already secured include:

Class 13 invites you to join their journey by following their blog throughout the ten days of their trip. Each day, a team of three AALP participants will be posting about the tour stops, experiences, learnings and a-ha moments of the day. You are invited to check out the posts, pictures and join the conversation.

Check back closer to July 5th for a complete listing of where Class 13 will be and what they will be experiencing.

Thanks to all the friends and sponsors of AALP. Without their support and generous donations study tours, such as this one, wouldn’t be possible.
