Clinics, Workshops, Conferences & Tours
The KARL Graduate Program includes specialized professional improvement clinics, workshops and big issue conferences on a regional and statewide basis. Frequent surveys will present options for interest areas to develop into training and travel opportunities. KANZAQuest LLC will serve as logistical coordinators, fee collection and vendor payment services and will coordinate the event marketing and event operations.
An education plan for the next 5 years for the KARL Graduate Program tours can be viewed via the link below. Since logistics management is so complex, especially for tours, we believe you should have plenty of time to plan your possible participation.

Differing from the “Push” form of education that the KARL Program provides, the KARL Graduate Program is a “Pull” educational program. We will be providing experiences YOU request through survey responses. Market demand therefor determines our agenda. The topics and locations are to remain flexible to deal with critical issues that might surface and tour location adjustments depending on trends. KARL alumni surveys will be considered when determining destinations. Alumni will serve as team support for workshop and conference coordination and topic development.
*TOURS: The KARL Graduate Program Intrastate (Kansas), Blue Chip (Corporate Strategic Management tours to a Fortune 500 company), Interstate (US Domestic) and International Study Tour destination options will be surfaced from surveys of the graduates with general tour opportunities (ultimately) marketed 2-5 years in advance of the projected travel dates.
DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL EXPERIENCES: In appreciation for supporting the two-year KARL Program, domestic and international tours are offered by the KARL Graduate Program, coordinated by KANZAQuest LLC. A comfortable pace and balanced blend of fun and education allows us to continue lifelong learning.
KARL Graduates have first-priority for attending tours. Fees are based on double occupancy, but graduates may travel as a single (supplement required) or share the experience with their spouse or adult guest. If the tour has available seats remaining, current board members and their guest have the next option. If still not filled, past board members will be contacted. If spaces still remain, regional / state leadership alumni and their guest will be invited.
Sustaining the two-year program is an important component of the KARL Graduate Program. We encourage support of the two-year program. Domestic and international tour participants that donate $250 per household to KARL Inc. will be given priority. Checks should be made payable to KARL, Inc. The KARL Program donations are encouraged for in-state tour participation as well.
Note that donations made to the KARL Foundation endowment funds are considered perpetual gifts, and are not considered donations to the current class.
BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION: The greatest benefits of the KARL Graduate Program are to: 1) increase support of the two year KARL Program by alumni thus expanding their network 2) provide life-long learning and professional improvement opportunities 3) enhance quality of life experiences for graduates and their spouses through cultural exchange travel opportunities and 4) greatly enhance network development with other state and international agricultural leadership alumni and networks beyond the KARL family network.

For the alumni of the KARL Program there will be very little or no change in your life-long continuing education opportunities. Reunions, clinics, workshops & conferences as-well-as in-state, domestic and international tours all proceed as planned. And, as prioritized trends/needs and increased alumni engagement grows, so too will new opportunities, within and outside our borders.
