An Extensive Network
The Alliance is a personal and professional organization for young men and women in agriculture. Alliance members believe agriculture is an exciting and dynamic industry and want to be part of a national network of professionals prepared for roles of leadership in their respective organizations and communities.
The Alliance was established In 2001 by a group young agriculture professionals who had gained a great deal from the Agriculture Future of America program formed a network to continue their professional development and seek camaraderie among peers. Membership now includes a wide variety of agricultural professionals both with and without previous AFA experience.
