Advancing Georgia's Leaders in Agriculture and Forestry (AGL)


Advancing Georgia's Leaders in Agriculture and Forestry (AGL) educates, empowers, and connects today’s professionals in agriculture, forestry, natural resources, and allied sectors to be dynamic industry leaders. Individuals within AGL become more effective spokespeople for their industries, establish strong allegiances across the state and nation, and further develop their leadership skills.

Participants will be selected through a nomination, application, and interview process. Anyone can serve as a nominator and submit their contact information and the nominee's contact information with a written statement of support on our website. Information regarding nominations can be found on the AGL webpage once available.

AGL is a product of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Georgia.


  • Educate individuals on the U.S. and international political, social, and economic systems to analyze and solve complex issues related to people, technology, agriculture, and the environment and to create a basis for lifelong learning.
  • Empower leaders with the confidence necessary to advocate more effectively to ensure positive actions for Georgia’s agriculture and natural resources industries.
