NJAA’s Raising the Bar conference to be held at SDSU

Feb. 1 deadline to attend at the University of Arkansas, and March 1 for South Dakota State University.

The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) hosts Raising the Bar leadership conferences each year as a way to encourage its members to travel, meet other NJAA youth and learn more about the Angus business. Raising the Bar conferences will take place in two locations this spring, and juniors are encouraged to take note of upcoming deadlines.

The University of Arkansas will host a Raising the Bar conference March 3-6 in Bentonville, Ark.; and South Dakota State University will be the host April 7-10 in Brookings, S.D. The tentative schedule for both conferences includes a campus tour, educational workshops, farm and ranch tours, as well as social activities and games.

“The National Junior Angus Board has been planning some fantastic events at the University of Arkansas and South Dakota State University,” Clark says. “We encourage all of our junior members to consider attending one of the conferences.”

Made possible through donations to the Angus Foundation, the NJAA’s Raising the Bar conferences are an opportunity for junior members to experience college campuses across the country, learn about careers in agriculture and connect with other cattle enthusiasts.

Registration for the Arkansas event is due by Feb. 1. To attend Raising the Bar in South Dakota, you must be signed up by March 1. To participate, visit the NJAA website to download registration forms. The $100 registration fee covers lodging, conference meals and materials.
