Empowering the next generation: Potato LEAF opens applications for 2024 Leadership Institute

The Potato Leadership, Education, and Advancement Foundation (Potato LEAF) is currently accepting applications for the 2024 Potato Industry Leadership Institute (PILI), February 21 through March 1, 2024.

PILI provides tools to help growers and industry members develop as leaders and motivate them to commit their time and energy to the betterment of the U.S. potato industry.

The Leadership Institute is a 10-day program that provides an overview of the U.S. potato industry, the challenges and issues beyond the production sector, and the roles of the industry’s state and national organizations in maintaining a positive business climate for potato growers.

The 2024 program will begin in Idaho with leadership training and industry tours (traveling from Boise to Idaho Falls) and conclude in Washington, D.C., where the class will participate in NPC’s Washington Summit.

Thomas Baker with Allied Potato, Inc. in Bakersfield, Calif., and a 2023 participant summarized his experience as, “The Potato Industry Leadership Institute not only highlights the challenges we face as an industry but equips you with the knowledge and skills to effectively combat the issues.”

The participant application and additional information can be found here. All applications must be submitted electronically by Friday, October 20, 2023. Participants will be selected and notified by November 10, 2023.
