The program conducts of a series of classroom and travel seminars that requires 45+ training days through a two-year period. The three-day seminars are held in January, February, October and December. The national travel seminars include trips in June of each year. The first trip is an agricultural tour within the continental United States. The following year includes a trip to Washington D.C. and Gettysburg. An international trip completes the program at the end of the second year.

Seminars are core learning opportunities. Diverse seminar subjects reflect the challenges facing agriculture, forestry and natural resource leaders. They emphasize:

  • Leadership skill building
  • Effective communication
  • Emerging technology
  • Environmental issues
  • Agricultural research
  • Public policy
  • Economic development
  • Agricultural trade and global competition

These subjects also arise in the travel seminars where they are studied within the context of different cultures, organizations and communities.
