Rural Leadership North Dakota
Members of RLND Class VI, the RLND Council and RLND alumni joined Governor Dalrymple at the Capital on the first Rural Leadership North Dakota day.
Effective leadership demands honed communication skills. The focus of much of our education and business world is writing, speaking and presenting. Listening is mostly ignored! Attend the Listening – A Critical Skill Workshop on January 16th and hone your listening skills as you network with fellow RLND Alumni. Mel Nelson, Executive Management Systems CEO, will be the presenter.
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.
