Join Sonja Langseth this upcoming Thursday segment for August 23rd as she talks with the Agriculture Future of America (AFA) organization, covering the overview perspective of AFA along with its mission and opportunities it offers for students.
First up is AFA CEO and President Russ Weathers as they discuss the beginning, mission, and future of AFA.
Then Sonja will be talking with Dan Dye, President of Horizons Milling Cargill, Inc., who also serves on the AFA Board. Cargill has been a corporate sponsor of AFA since its origin 15 years ago, and Dye explains the opportunities and importance of partnering with AFA from a corporate perspective. For other corporations potentially interested in such a partnership with AFA, Dye also discusses the steps to take in order to become actively engaged with AFA.
Last but definitely not least, Sonja catches up with Kate Maertens, a senior at the University of Minnesota, where she also serves as an AFA Campus Ambassador. Kate and Sonja discuss take-away benefits of being involved in AFA from a student perspective and valuable opportunities in network building within such a dynamic organization.
