The Rural Ontario Institute has announced that the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) Class 17 recruitment is being extended until April 7, 2017, to allow more interested applicants the chance to apply.
With AALP Class 16 preparing for its final seminar/graduation in early April, those interested in the program have the opportunity to speak with current class members and alumni at the William A. Stewart Public Lecture and Reception scheduled for April 6 at the Lamplighter Inn in London, Ontario.
The online application form is currently available and will be accessible from now until April 7, 2017.
After a review of application materials in April, a selection committee will interview applicants at several locations throughout the province. Successful candidates are offered a position in AALP Class 17 in late June.
The Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program, delivered by the Rural Ontario Institute (ROI), is one of the longest running and most successful leadership development programs. Established in 1984, the program is an executive development opportunity for men and women who want to shape the future of the agriculture and food industry and make a positive difference in rural communities across Ontario. To date, there are over 450 AALP graduates using their leadership skills in rural, agriculture and agri-food industries – provincially, nationally and internationally.
During the 19-month program, AALP participants learn about leadership and organizational development theories and practices, government and political processes, economics, trade policy, global affairs, sector and industry related issues in Ontario and globally through North American and international study travel components.
