Pork Leadership Institute

The Pork Leadership Institute (PLI) is a comprehensive training program whose graduates spread the pork industry’s story from Main Street to the nation’s capital. Conducted jointly by the National Pork Producers Council and the National Pork Board, PLI welcomes fifteen to twenty future leaders into the program each year. Producer candidates are identified and nominated by state pork association executives and NPPC field representatives working together.

If you are interested in attending PLI and becoming a pork industry leader, contact your state executive or NPPC’s Janine Van Vark, at vanvakj@nppc.org.

If you want to experience the professional and personal growth as a leader in the pork industry while having fun and creating lasting relationships, then PLI is for you.
I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to go through the Pork Leadership Institute. If you are interested in the long-term success of the pork industry you should go through the program. I was able to do some great networking and made friendships for life.
