14 Dec KGFA congratulates 2023 class of Tomorrow’s Agribusiness Leaders
The selection committee for the Tomorrow’s Agribusiness Leaders (TAL) program met in early-December to review applications and select five members of the Kansas Agribusiness Retailers Association and five members of the Kansas Grain and Feed Association to comprise the 25th class of agribusiness’ premier leadership development course.
The selection committee of TAL alumni chose: Andrew Breese (Kansas Grain Inspection Service); Todd Dingler (ProValue Insurance); Jeff Ellis (Syngenta); Brandi Hartley (Farmers Coop Equity at Isabel); Blake Malcolm (AgMark LLC); Jed Miller (Ag Partners Cooperative Inc.); Kent Nichols (MKC); Todd Schultz (Producer Ag, LLC); Jack Vincent (The Scoular Company); and Ed Zahn (Heartland Ag Systems) to complete the 25th class.
“We are thrilled to welcome our 25th class of Tomorrow’s Agribusiness Leaders,” KGFA President and CEO Ron Seeber said. “The program’s longevity, a quarter century and more than 200 graduates, is a testament to our members seeing a personal and professional return on their invested time and referring their peers to apply year-after-year. I want to congratulate and thank our newest TAL class for making the commitment to learn more about their association, the legislative process and how as graduates of the program we can work together to enhance the future of agribusiness.” Each class participates in three sessions designed to improve the leadership skills of Kansas agribusiness men and women through increasing their understanding of the association’s mission and activities, teaching the state and federal legislative process, improving leadership and communication skills, and preparing members for possible public service through campaigns or public office.
