2015 Conference Information

What do you want to be? It’s probably one of the first questions we answer. It’s also a question we will continually ask ourselves. Whom are we striving to be? What’s our purpose? What legacy will we leave?

As agriculturists, these questions go beyond our personal aspirations. How are we going to build upon the past? How will we innovate for the future? We are at a point in time where many decision makers are removed from agriculture. Agriculture’s story needs to be told. We know that. It’s time to stop talking about how. We need to step up and share our stories. It’s time to be the voice.

Demands for more, higher quality agricultural products are increasing throughout the world. Nothing progresses by remaining the same. Where do we need to explore change in our industry and communities? What are we waiting for? We have the opportunity to be the catalyst.

There’s a generational gap in agriculture’s workforce. We will have to hit the ground running and accelerate in our careers more quickly than ever before. Knowing our purpose and place in agriculture drives us to dedicate our careers and ourselves to making a difference. We must be the future.

With these concepts in mind the AFA student leaders chose the theme "BE: The Voice. The Catalyst. The Future." for the 2015 AFA Leaders Conference theme. The team is hard at work preparing this year's leader development experience.
