LEAD Class 40

January 5-18, 2023

LEAD Group 40 is traveling to Costa Rica, Colombia & Panama to learn about international trade, foreign policy, cross-cultural understanding and geopolitics. Daily email updates regarding the classes travels will be available only during the class.

The Nebraska LEAD Program began 40 years ago to develop agricultural leaders from Nebraska's future generations. The constant changes that occur in agricultural policy, marketing, economics and technology point to the need for strong leaders to advocate for the heart of Nebraska's economy--agriculture. Now in our fourth decade of forming pioneering agricultural leaders, we have evolved into one of the nation's premier agricultural leadership development programs.


The program is recognized both statewide and nationally as an innovative organization that has improved Nebraska in many ways. For example, many members of commodity boards, extension boards, local school boards, or local church councils, count themselves among our 1100+ alumni.

After you look through our website, search out and speak to our alumni. Encourage them to describe their LEAD experiences. Take time to learn what they have accomplished since graduating to serve their local community, our state or our nation. We believe you will be impressed.
