Tunica cotton producer gets leadership training
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Jon Koehler Bibb, a Tunica, Miss., cotton producer, is participating in the first of three training sessions in the National Cotton Council’s (NCC) 2014-15 Emerging Leaders Program.
Sponsored by a grant to The Cotton Foundation from Monsanto, the Emerging Leaders Program strives to help participants gain a better understanding of: 1) the NCC’s role, including its programs, policy development and implementation process; 2) Cotton Council International’s role in developing and maintaining export markets for U.S. cotton, manufactured cotton products and cottonseed products; 3) the broad spectrum of issues that affect U.S. cotton’s economic well-being; and 4) the U.S. political process. The program, which provides class members with intensive professional development training, also equips them to increase their involvement in these and other NCC activities.
