Agenda and Scheduling

Strong chapters have regular meetings and events to keep members involved in carrying out our mission: The Cultivating Change Collegiate Ambassador Program promotes academic and professional advancement by empowering Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ+) agriculturists. We suggest meeting monthly as a chapter, as well as hosting one campus event and/or industry engagement experience per month.
