  • Comfortable with public speaking
  • Create inclusive environments and interactions
  • Work in teams as well as independently
  • Time management skills
  • Interest in event and program management

  • Servant leadership
  • Majoring in agriculture, food, natural resources or a related field and have a passion for agriculture
  • Passionate about AFA’s mission and have the ability to represent the organization in a professional manner
  • Recommended cumulative GPA of at least 3.0
  • Valid U.S. driver's license
  • Responsible and punctual attendance at all meetings
