Over the past few months Harry Cummings, of the University of Guelph, and his consultant team, have conducted a complete review and assessment of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP).  Now, with the evaluation complete, the Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) is accepting applications for their fifteenth class which will begin in September 2013 and run through March 2015.  Applications are due by Tuesday, April 30.

 “The results are in and the recommendations have been incorporated to create a dynamic, refreshed program for our next class,” says Rob Black, CEO of the Rural Ontario Institute.  “We have held off on promoting the program until we had all of the details in place.  As in the past, we wanted applicants to have a clear picture of exactly what they are applying for, and what their time and financial commitments would be.”

 The dates for seminars, study tours and an all new component of the program, seven one-hour webinars, are now all set for AALP Class 15 and the complete Curriculum Outline is available online.  New, for the upcoming cohort, are two optional activity days, to be held in conjunction with the Toronto and Northern Ontario seminars.

 For more information and the various application forms please visit http://www.aalp.on.ca/application.aspx or call the ROI office at 519-826-4204.
