BOZEMAN, MT —The Montana Farm Bureau Federation announces their ACE (Advocate. Communicate. Educate) Leadership Program class for 2024. This is the ACE Leadership Program’s seventh year of empowering Farm Bureau members to become confident and effective leaders in their local communities, for Montana agriculture and for their county Farm Bureaus.
The program arms its participants to communicate industry issues and represent Farm Bureau interests at the local, state and national level. ACE successfully does this by focusing on leadership development, engaging local communities and issues advocacy.
“Montana Farm Bureau is committed to developing strong leaders for our rural communities and our state’s number-one industry,” said MFBF ACE Program Co-Coordinator, Sue Ann Streufert. “We have another high-caliber group of leaders in our 2024 ACE Class. We look forward to delivering six seminars packed with the skills these Farm Bureau members need to effectively advocate for agriculture and to become increasingly active in their county Farm Bureaus.”
The year-long program will kick off January 10 in Bozeman followed by five more seminars across Montana. During these trainings, ACE participants will hear from polished agriculture advocates, media professionals, communications specialists and policymakers. In between seminars, they’ll also participate in virtual one-on-one coaching with an expert in leadership and personal development.
The 2024 ACE Class: Trina Jo Bradley, Valier, Buddy Cheff, Ronan, Gary Heibertshausen, Alzada, Nick Jerke, Clyde Park, Logan Kruse, Helena, Meghan Lehman, Joliet, Todd Lackman, Miles City, Jeremiah Peterson, Bozeman, Gwynn Simeniuk, Glasgow, Ty Young, Missoula.
