  • Develop interpersonal relationship and communication skills;

  • Become prepared to take leadership roles in almond organizations and your local community;

  • Gain an understanding of current social, political, scientific and economic issues facing the almond industry, as well as how to effect change

  • Learn how all sectors along the almond supply chain work together to provide a safe, sustainable product.

Program participants explain the benefits of the Leadership Program

Due to the effects of COVID-19, the 2020 Almond Leadership Program will extend into 2021. We will not be accepting applications for the Almond Leadership Program in 2021. Applications for the 2022 program will be made available in fall of 2021.
