Rural Leadership North Dakota
Rural Leadership North Dakota (RLND) Class VII participants recently experienced a 12 day study tour of Thailand and Vietnam where they learned about the country’s agriculture, people, communities and culture.
RLND Class VII participants retuned to Bismarck for seminar seven, “Understanding North Dakota Ag and Rural Policies”.
By proclamation of the Governor of the State of North Dakota, January 12, 2017 has been proclaimed Rural Leadership North Dakota Day!
Seminar six for RLND Class VII found us fighting our first winter storm of the season. They say effective leaders are able to adapt, and adapt we did. The theme of the Dickinson seminar was “Exploring the relationships between Agriculture, Communities and Natural Resources.”
RLND Class VII participants concluded their first year of their RLND experience with a final seminar held in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN; June 21st-24th. Participants studied the cooperative business model, components of a healthy community, and financial resources available to rural areas for agriculture and communities. They also continued their program long study of food systems.
