About Young Professionals in Agriculture


Connecting young agricultural leaders through professional development, industry learning, and service opportunities. 



Vision Statement

Young Professionals in Agriculture will be the premier organization for young professionals. This will be accomplished by expanding our membership base with engaged leaders who continually work to shape the future of agriculture. We will be viewed as a respected resource for our combined industry knowledge, leadership, and service. 




Young Professionals in Agriculture was founded in 2012 with the mission to connect young agricultural leaders located in Iowa. Members meet the second Tuesday of every month through various social events or business tours. Members also value service and philanthropy and participate in various events throughout the year. The organization continues to grow and more than 100 members are currently part of Young Professionals in Agriculture.
