NJHA Board Member Information
Twelve outstanding Hereford juniors serve each year on the NJHA Board of Directors. Every year, four board members are elected to three-year terms at the annual membership meeting which is held in conjunction with the Junior National Hereford Expo. During their term, directors develop and implement programs and events that serve junior Hereford members across the nation.
Traveling on behalf of the NJHA to various activities enables them to meet fellow members and to share their thoughts and experiences of Hereford involvement. They also get first-hand experience at leadership, cooperation and organization.
The NJHA Board also makes recommendations for new programs and ideas to the American Hereford Association Board of Directors, they help train other juniors and they promote the Hereford breed at various activities and events throughout the year.
