AALP Class 14 North American Study Tour

Each class of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) includes two study tours as part of the curriculum – one in North America, and one involving international travel. These study tours give participants the opportunity to gain an even broader perspective and understanding of regional/national/ international issues and their interrelationships.

AALP Class 14 will be travelling to New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC while on their study tour this July.

Learning about another region or country’s culture, economy, businesses and government policies is a key theme of these tours. As leaders find themselves trying to cope with global competition, it is not surprising that this aspect of the training is rated as extremely important (Ipsos Reid Study, 2007).

Follow AALP Class 14 throughout their travels and hear about their key learnings on this blog. Stay tuned!

AALP is administered by the Rural Ontario Institute.
