Leadership Academy

Nebraska Farm Bureau's Leadership Academy is an opportunity to meet others committed to the future of rural Nebraska and to establish a solid network of friends and fellow leaders. Participants will learn the latest information about critical issues and develop their skills for leading change.
  • The Nebraska Farm Bureau Leadership Academy is for Farm Bureau members with the potential for providing exceptional leadership in the county, community and state.
  • The Academy is open to men and women of all ages. However, those who have served on the NFBF Board of Directors are not eligible to participate in this program.
