Faces of Leadership Conference
While the Junior National Hereford Expo promotes learning aspects of showing cattle and educational activities associated with relative contests, the NJHA's annual Faces of Leadership Conference focuses on leadership development. Junior members from all parts of the country participate in the event each year. During the three-day event, more than 100 participants listen to nationally known speakers and participate in junior board workshops, which assist in the enhancement of the individual's leadership talents, communication skills and beef-industry knowledge.
Typically PRIDE is held at land grant universities, however in 2008 the event traveled to Washington D.C., and participants got to experience our Nation’s capital.
In the past few years we have been to South Dakota, Colorado State University and toured the Panhandle of Texas and New Mexico in 2016.
This conference is offered to junior members ages 14-21. Intermediate and senior members will benefit the most from this leadership conference and due to some of the activities planned for the event in 2016 junior members must meet the 14 year old age requirement to register for Faces of Leadership.
