NMDA encourages people in
New Mexico food, agriculture
to apply for
agricultural leadership program

Over the last 14 years, the New Mexico Agricultural Leadership (NMAL) program has served New Mexico by identifying and providing leadership development opportunities to more than 90 men and women in the food, agriculture, and natural resource sectors so they could become stronger and more effective in their work and in their communities.

NMDA is one of many proud sponsors of the program.  New Mexico Secretary Jeff Witte was instrumental in the creation of the program more than a decade ago.

NMAL is now recruiting participants for its eleventh cohort, with class scheduled to begin this November.  Download the application packet and submit it by August 20.  More information is available at 575-646-6691 and nmal@nmsu.edu.
