The Manitoba Rural Leadership Training Committee (MRLTC) was formed
in 1958 by a small group who recognized the acute need in rural
Manitoba for programs of adult education, particularly in the area
of specialized leadership training. Its purpose is to give its participants
information, leadership training, and thus confidence to become
involved in decision making processes at all levels. The M.R.L.T.C.
is non-partisan and does not develop or endorse policies. The initiating
group met under the Chairmanship of the late Dr. J.R.C. Evans (president
of Brandon College), and included Dr. E.J. Tyler, W. McGregor, F.W.
Hamilton and R.E. Forbes. This group held its first meeting in June
1958. The MRLTC included the following groups: Brandon College,
Manitoba Farmers' Union, Manitoba Federation of Agriculture, Manitoba
Department of Agriculture, Manitoba Pool Elevators, Manitoba Women's
Institute, the University of Manitoba and United Grain Growers.
Programmes over the years have ranged from two-day seminars in local
communities to week-long programmes conducted at central locations
and organizations throughout the province. The MRLTC is still in
