Delegate Meetings

The Penn State Agricultural Council was formed in 1961 as the primary forum for interaction between the College and its industry clientele. The Council serves in an advisory capacity to the College and in an advocacy capacity for the College.

The Council's membership is comprised of organizations, groups, and businesses who represent an agricultural or related interest in Pennsylvania. The Council provides opportunities for members to stay informed and provide feedback on College programs, activities, and opportunities, to actively participate in the College strategic planning process.
