28 Dec KARA congratulates 2024 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 26th class of agribusiness’ premier leadership development course.
The selection committee of TAL alumni chose: Nolan Allison (Bartlett Grain A Savage Company); Dusty Campbell (Producer Ag, LLC); Michael Carpenter (Stockton Farmers Union Mercantile and Shipping Association); Lance Cochran (Kennedy Berkley); Dalton Gantz (D.E. Bondurant Grain, Inc.); Nathan Larson (MKC); Kevin Lee (FMC); Lucas Madding (WinField United); Jonathan Reazin (MKC) and Joshua Stucky (ADM) to complete the 26th class.
“One of the best opportunities we are able to provide for our members is our TAL program ,” KARA President and CEO Ron Seeber said. “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. We can’t wait to get started in January.”
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.
