Potato Industry Leadership Institute

The Potato Industry Leadership Institute brings together outstanding potato growers and industry representatives for eight days of training and professional development.

Participants will receive an overview of the local and national potato industry, including some of the challenges and issues beyond the production sector along with tours of local agricultural businesses.

Attendees will then fly to Washington, D.C, and hear from public policy and communication experts and practice how to effectively deliver key messages. Participants join other growers from their state to educate members of Congress on the U.S. potato industry and policies impacting it.
