The International Production & Processing Expo announces a new Young Leaders “30 under 30” Programme, targeting young professionals who normally would not have the financial resources or opportunity to attend the IPPE.
The goal of the programme is to invest in and engage young professionals between the ages of 21 and 29
- who work for companies actively involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or production of animal/poultry feed and
- are members of any of the following IPPE sponsoring associations: American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), American Meat Institute (AMI), or US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).
The programme is designed to recognise professional leadership qualities and to provide exposure to IPPE, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA from January 29-30, 2013.
The programme provides education to further training in each person’s respective industry and will expose the recipients to the latest technology used in the industry.
Selected applicants will receive a full, complimentary registration to IPPE. The registration will allow attendance to all education programmes. Additionally, the programme will provide two complimentary nights of lodging.
To be considered for IPPE’s Young Leaders “30 under 30” program, applicants must submit their application by Thursday, November 1, 2012, and must be employed by an active member of AFIA, AMI, or USPOULTRY.
No more than two applicants per company location may be nominated. A panel of industry professionals will review the applications, and recipients will be notified of the panel’s decision by November 19, 2012. Further details about the programme and an online application can be found here: International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo, or International Meat Expo.
