Executive Director

    The Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program holds a mission to develop leaders that will become a strong unified voice for agriculture. This is done so through curriculum-based programming on leadership skills, understanding state, national and international agriculture and ag policy.
    The future of agriculture is only as strong as the men and women that choose to step up and lead the charge. They can only do that by understanding the growing chasm of diversity in an increasing population and learning the resources and opportunities available to them to make a difference in their industry and their communities. This is Dani's belief after having grown up in 4-H, FFA and on her family's sheep farm in Pavillion, Wyo.
    Dani previously worked for the Colorado State Fair for 12 years where she raised over 16 million in sponsorships during her tenure as well as started a volunteer rodeo committee that is now in its 15th year.
    Dani holds a bachelor degree in Business Administration from Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas and a Master of Agriculture, Cooperative Extension from Colorado State University.

Project and Event Coordinator

    Amy Herrmann is the Project and Event Coordinator helping to grow the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program.  A Colorado native, her passion for agriculture advocacy developed through involvement in the FFA program and maintaining a ranch in southwest Colorado. Living on a ranch for most of her life, she is dedicated to enhancing her ability to represent agriculture as an effective communicator and advocate.  In this role, she provides assistance for the up-and-coming classes of CALP, supports the board of directors, committees, and staff to carry out the organization’s mission of agricultural education and hopes to grow the alumni program.  She believes the CALP program will develop leaders that will become a strong, unified voice for agriculture, ensuring the industry’s success not only in Colorado, but across the country and around the globe.
