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.
