Tailored to Farm Bureau members between the ages of 25 and 35, Michigan Farm Bureau's Institute for Leadership Education, better known as ProFILE, is a leadership experience for a select group of agriculture's most promising future leaders.
The 15-month program instills pride for the agriculture industry and Farm Bureau organization and helps participants:
The program also includes a Washington, D.C. experience and a week-long tour that exposes ProFILE participants to agriculture and Farm Bureau activities in other states. Trips traditionally include stops at the American Farm Bureau Federation headquarters in Washington, D.C., and several state Farm Bureau offices in the Midwest.
To be considered, candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by their county Farm Bureau in addition to completing an application.
Individuals accepted into ProFILE pay $100 per year. Michigan Farm Bureau refunds this total investment of $200 upon his or her completion of the program.
