The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association is excited to announce our newest State Beef Checkoff funded endeavor: the ACA Young Cattlemen Leadership Program (YCLP). The three primary goals of the YCLP are:
The YCLP will consist of 5 meetings dispersed across Alabama over the course of a year. The class will be selected by a committee based on applications submitted. From the applicant pool there will be a maximum of 20 participants selected. Preference will be given to those nominees who are between the ages of 20 & 40, but do not be discouraged to nominate yourself or someone else who falls out of that range. To encourage buy-in from the participants, there will be a tuition fee of $250 that will be due before the first session sometime in early summer.
We are encouraging county chapters to cover the tuition and “buy-in” to their young leaders. If you are interested in applying to the program, complete the enclosed application and submit it with a letter of recommendation from someone you consider being an upcoming leader in your county’s cattlemen association.
Cobie Rutherford will be coordinating this important program so you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-265-1867 for more information.
