The Iowa Pork Producers Association is now accepting applications for its 2020 Iowa Pork Leadership Academy class. IPLA is for men and women who want to contribute to a better future for Iowa’s pig farmers by connecting with their communities, and supporting the long-term profitability of the pork industry in Iowa.
IPLA was created to support Iowa’s pork producers who are committed to the pork industry. It provides them with the tools to succeed as leaders. These tools include:
A working knowledge of the Iowa Pork Producers Association and other key organizations that work with IPPA to broaden perspectives and build coalitions;
Understanding and defining leadership styles and how they impact people working together in a group;
A deeper understanding of the pork industry and its economic contributions to Iowa, and how that impacts Iowa’s place in the world; and
Sharpening written and verbal communications and messaging about pig farming and pork.
The academy will meet four times in 2020, starting with an introductory session in February 2020, which culminates with the group’s graduation at the January 2021 Iowa Pork Congress.
Online applications are due Nov. 30, 2019.
The 2019 IPLA members will graduate at the 2020 IPPA Annual Meeting Awards Lunch on Jan. 21, 2020. Those members are: Kara Burch, Independence; Amanda Chipman, Ames; Jared Gent, Kalona; Mary Heiller, North Liberty; Ryan Holt, Des Moines; Michael King, Urbandale; Brian Lundell, Kiron; Craig Mostaert, Castalia; Nathan Nieuwendorp, Inwood; Scott Opperman, Manning; Ty Rosburg, Charter Oak; and Linda Schroeder, Remsen.
