Rural Leadership North Dakota
Class VI had the opportunity to explore the Western part of the state for Seminar Six and gained insightful knowledge on relationships between agriculture, natural resources, and communities. We began on Thursday November 13th in Williston with a Community Capitals Presentation by Kathy Tweeten.
Members of RLND Class VI recently attended the “Regional Agriculture and Rural Issues Seminar” June 24-27th in Minneapolis, MN. This seminar was the fifth of ten seminars Class VI participants will experience.
RLND Class VI participants held their third seminar, “Agriculture’s Future in North Dakota”, February 6-8 in Fargo. The seminar began with a tour of the NDSU greenhouse where the group was able to see a variety of crops in various stages of research. Class VI participants had the exclusive opportunity to see a new area within the greenhouse that will be a closed environment for plant research.
Participants of Rural Leadership North Dakota’s Class VI (2013-15) met in Park River for their second seminar on January 9-11, 2014. This event marked the first time that a RLND seminar has been held in Walsh County.
The graduation gala honoring Rural Leadership North Dakota (RLND) Class V participants on their completion of the 2011 -2013 RLND program was held Friday, November 22, 2013 at the Ramada Bismarck Hotel in Bismarck. The evening started with a live auction with Daryl Lies, Class V member, as the auctioneer. Gala attendees were generous as they bid on the five live auction items. Part of the funds from the live and silent auction were given to the RLND Alumni Association. Auction funds also supported the cost of a Class V perspective video and a RLND Program video.
