The Agricultural Education Graduate Student Association will host the second Student Organization Leadership Academy Feb. 22.
The day is split into two sessions, morning and afternoon. During the morning session, attendees will hear from the keynote speaker, Ag Alumni president-elect, Colleen Abbott.
Lunchtime will include a panel consisting of CAFNR Ag Alumni board members who will answer questions from participants.
The afternoon will consist of six sessions: Professional Development, Marketing and Recruitment, Planning Events, Building Strong Officer Teams, Fundraising and Budgets, and Meeting Logistics.
“Our association shares the same goal for the event,” said Kristina M. Haug, graduate teaching and research assistant for the department of agricultural education and leadership. “We want it to be beneficial and purposeful for the students. We want them to gain skills and experiences with leadership that they can use in their organizations and future.”
The Ag Alumni Association underwrites the event.
