Applications are now closed for I-LEAD Class 9. Please check back for applications for I-LEAD Class 10 in the summer of 2020.
I-LEAD class members come from diverse backgrounds and share a common commitment to the future of agriculture in Iowa. Individuals that are involved in production agriculture, the food and agriculture industry, agriculture media, or education and government, are all encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who have been in their chosen profession for two or more years and to those who feel they can contribute to Iowa agriculture.
The costs associated with I-LEAD educational programs, lodging and meals are paid by ICPB and ICGA, as is transportation and expenses to U.S. locations. I-LEAD class members are responsible for the cost of travel to and from I-LEAD sessions in Iowa and fundraising for their international trade mission.
