Adult learning important in the agriculture industry too. That’s the message from outgoing CEO Don Norton of the Illinois Ag Leadership Foundation.
Norton has been with the organization for seven years and is leaving for a similar role in South Dakota.
The IALF is a non-profit educational corporation. The funds raised provide for a 19-month development program that focuses on building the skills, knowledge and character of leaders in the ag industry. There have been over 500 graduates from the program since its inception in the 1980s.
