PASAbilities - Nominations Needed for Sustainable Ag Leadership Awards for 2014
One of the highlights of our annual Farming for the Future Conference is the presentation of the Sustainable Ag Leadership Awards exemplifying the spirit of sustainability in agriculture and food systems. The PASA Board of Directors is currently accepting nominations for two leadership awards, one to an individual farmer (or farming couple) and another to a business proprietor. Award winners will each be asked to prepare a 18 to 20-minute presentation for one of the plenary sessions at our conference in February 2014 and will receive a plaque and modest cash prize.
The PASAbilities series is designed with three distinct objectives in mind:
- To hear the stories of our successful leaders and innovators in the sustainable ag community.
- To inspire farmers and business owners in the audience to improve their operations and/or begin transitioning to more sustainable management.
- To provide outreach to the public in promoting sustainable agriculture.
Announcements of awards will be made approximately one month in advance of the conference.
The Organizational Leadership Committee of the Board of Directors will be receiving and reviewing the nominations for awards.
Nominations are being accepted for either category (farm or business) via this web form, you can also mail submissions to the PASA headquarters office at the address below.
Surface-mailed nominations should also include a brief statement explaining why the nominee is qualified.
All nominations should be received by September 30, 2013.
