Alston and Marshall Graduate Cattlemens Leadership Class

BY MELANIE WADE –

Local cattlemen Luke Alston and Aaron Marshall recently completed a year long leadership program that will benefit their fellow county farmers and members of the Cattlemens Association by way of knowledge and resources.

The Young Cattlemen’s Leadership Class (YCLC) is an ACA program that began in 2011 to “educate future leaders by giving them hands-on experience with legislative sessions, commerce, commodities, media and PR, as well as various segments of the beef industry. Participants not only gain invaluable knowledge, resources and networking connections, but they also become more prepared to lead the cattlemen of Arkansas toward economic success,” says their website, www.arbeef.org. The program takes one year to complete and includes five sessions – four ‘working’ sessions, and one graduation session.

“Participants not only gain invaluable knowledge, resources and networking connections, but they also become more prepared to lead the cattlemen of Arkansas toward economic success,” organizers said.

Each year the ACA selects 15 members for that class, from around 60 applicants. If you are interested in applying or would like more information, contact the ACA staff at 501-224-2114 or email us at info@arbeef.org. Deadline for 2018 Nominations is February 1, 2018.
