Ag 100 Council

Join industry and business leaders working together to ensure the future of CALES and Arizona’s primary economy. 

Ag 100 Council members are a group of dedicated supporters who advocate and generate financial support on behalf of the College of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences. The Ag 100 Council was founded in 1986 when 100 members of Arizona’s top agribusiness industries joined forces to advocate for the advancement of shared interests. Today, Ag 100 continues to be an inclusive and diverse group of elite business leaders and has expanded its membership beyond agriculture to include new industries vital to Arizona’s bioeconomy. The Ag 100 Council, which includes up to 100 members, meets several times a year to workshop ideas, find solutions to vital issues, network and plan advocacy.
