Participants in the 2010 Wheat Organization Leaders of the Future (WOLF) program will travel to D.C. late next week to begin their sessions ahead of the NAWG and U.S. Wheat Associates meetings beginning on Saturday.

WOLF is designed as an advanced leadership program for state wheat grower leaders who will soon become part of the NAWG Board of Directors. The program focuses on the responsibilities of Board members, NAWG’s structure and leadership skills. It is put on annually and generously sponsored by Bayer CropScience.

The 2010 sessions will start off with a dinner Thursday night, followed by training sessions all day Friday. Friday night’s activities will include a second dinner and a field trip to see D.C. comedy troupe the Capitol Steps.

  • Jay Griffith, Ohio
  • Craig Reeder, Oregon
  • Brett Blankenship, Washington
  • Clark Kauffman, Idaho
  • Gordon Stoner, Montana
  • Brad Thykeson, North Dakota
