New Mexico Agriculture Leadership Program

Reaching Excellence in Agricultural Leadership


For agriculture to remain dynamic, well-informed leaders must emerge. The New Mexico Agricultural Leadership Program was founded in 2001 with the purpose of identifying and supporting effective leadership within the food, agriculture and natural resource industries of New Mexico. The program aids participants in the development of leadership skills so that they can become stronger and more effective leaders in their industries and communities. This is accomplished by exposing them to direct experience and interaction with a variety of businesses, social settings and political environments, both domestically and internationally.

The eighteen-month program consists of eight seminars with experts in their respective fields, on-site tours, meetings with business and government leaders, issue awareness, and leadership skills improvement. The New Mexico Agricultural Leadership Program is designed for people interested in improving their leadership potential for their future and continuing careers.

The New Mexico Agricultural Leadership Program is designed for people in the early stages of their leadership careers. We are currently recruiting participants for the tenth class. Class members come from every sector of New Mexico agriculture.
