Ag Lending Institute (ALI)

Ag Lenders Society of California is a proud supporter of the Ag Lending Institute (ALI) which is a joint project with the University Business Center at the Craig School of Business at California State University, Fresno. The ever-changing face of agribusiness poses increasing challenges for lenders, appraisers, farm managers, and agricultural consultants. These challenges bring opportunities for professionals who seek to reach a distinguished level of competency and leadership. It is ALI's goal to develop effective leaders in agricultural finance.

The Agricultural Lending Institute (ALI) provides in-depth training that industry professionals need to succeed in agricultural finance. ALI offers a rigorous competency-based curriculum, presented by distinguished faculty with professional expertise in agricultural finance.

The program involves two one-week sessions (usually held the 3rd week of June); the courses are designed to be completed over a two-year period. Classes are conducted in a facilitative style employing a case study format to enhance the principles taught during the week, culminating in the analysis and presentation of a loan request based on facts found in the case study and utilizing the skills acquired in the classroom.

Successful participants will be awarded a Certificate of Completion from California State University, Fresno, and a Certificate of Accredited Education from the Ag Lenders Society of California.
