National Junior Angus Association members can look forward to a number of activities and events in the upcoming New Year, and there’s no better time to start making plans for 2016. That’s according to American Angus Association Director of Events and Education Jaclyn Clark, who is encouraging NJAA members to reference their “green books,” which were recently distributed through the mail, to submit event registration in a timely manner.
“We’re looking forward to hosting Angus juniors for two Raising the Bar conferences in March and April, as well as during annual events such as the National Junior Angus Show and Leaders Engaged in Angus Development conference,” Clark says.
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.
The University of Arkansas will host a Raising the Bar conference March 3-6, in Fayetteville, 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.
Registration for the Arkansas event is due by Feb. 1, and to attend Raising the Bar in South Dakota, you must sign up by March 1. To participate, visit the NJAA website to download registration forms. The $100 registration fee covers lodging, conference meals and materials.
