Cornerstone Dairy Academy™
Professionals and producers with professionalism can set themselves apart from others. Cornerstone Dairy Academy™, a product of PDPW and underwritten by the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation (PDPF), can be a gateway to enhancing professionalism, communication and leadership skills needed for success in a 21st Century workplace. Put another way, this isn't just another conference; it is an elite development program for students and dairy professionals.
Attendance at Cornerstone Dairy Academy™ is by application only, with selected applicants receiving a scholarship for attendance at the two-day event, valued at over $600. Accepted applicants must agree to attend the full two-day event. Age is not a consideration for selection.
Applicants will be notified of their acceptance or denial by February 11, 2023. Accepted dairy producer & student applicants pay $150 in tuition, and all industry applicants pay $450. The remaining costs are covered with a program scholarship. Tuition includes program registration, lodging voucher of $50 per night (nights of March 14 and 15), and meals for both days of the program.
This application must be completed in one sitting; you cannot save it and return to it at a later time. We suggest you use a word processor to write essays, then paste them into the form to submit.
