Sponsors of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) announced a new Young Leaders “30 under 30” Program, targeting young professionals who normally would not have the financial resources or opportunity to attend the IPPE.

The program’s goal is to invest in and engage young professionals between the ages of 21 and 29 who work for companies actively involved in the producing and processing of poultry, meat or feed and are members of any of the following IPPE sponsoring associations: American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), American Meat Institute (AMI), or U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).

The program aims to recognize professional leadership qualities and to provide exposure to the world’s largest show involving the production and processing of meat and poultry products and the manufacture of feed and pet food products. The program will provide additional education and 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, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from January 29-31, 2013. The registration will allow attendance to all education programs. Additionally, the program will provide two complimentary nights of lodging.

To be considered for IPPE’s Young Leaders “30 under 30” program, applicants must submit their application by Thursday, November 1, 2012, and must be employed by an active member of AFIA, AMI, or USPOULTRY. No more than two applicants per company location may be nominated.
