US - The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) has launched a Young Leaders '30 under 30' programme.
The IPPE is launching the third annual Young Leaders '30 under 30' programme, which targets young professionals who normally would not have the financial resources or opportunity to attend 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 in the production of animal/poultry feed. Applicants must be a member of at least one of the following IPPE associations: American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), American Meat Institute (AMI), North American Meat Association (NAMA) or US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).
The programme is designed to recognise professional leadership qualities and to provide exposure to the world’s largest annual trade show involving the production and processing of meat and poultry products and the manufacture of feed and pet food products. The program 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 hosted in Atlanta, Georgia, from 27 to 29 January 2015. The registration will allow attendance to all complimentary education programs. New this year, IPPE’s '30 under 30' programme is offering complimentary registration to one of the collocated paid education programmes. The selected candidates will also receive two complimentary nights of lodging.
To be considered for IPPE’s '30 under 30' programme, applicants must submit their application by 1 November, and must be employed by an active member of AFIA, AMI, NAMA or USPOULTRY. No more than two applicants from a single member organisation may be nominated.
A panel of industry professionals will review the applications, and recipients will be notified of the panel’s decision by 15 November. The application, and further details about the programme, can be found by clicking here.
