Delegates are responsible for representing their state and selecting the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) directors, who will lead the organization the next three years. This is not a responsibility to be taken lightly as the election directly affects all NJHA members and the future of this junior program.

  1. State voting delegates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to cast votes for future board members.
  2. Delegates should handle the NJHA candidate selection process with the upmost respect to board members, candidates, advisors and staff and use maturity in their judgment and decision making process.

  4. Delegates are required to attend the delegate orientation meeting Sunday, July 6, at 7 p.m. in order to be eligible to cast a vote for the future NJHA board members.
  5. Delegates are required to dress appropriately and professionally, this is a business setting, therefore, business casual is preferred, jeans and a button up shirt are acceptable; dirty, ripped or holey clothes are not acceptable.
  6. Delegates are required to be at the delegate orientation meeting at least 10 minutes prior to get checked in and receive a name badge. Name badges will be required to vote and attend the NJHA membership meeting and director election on Tuesday, July 8 at 7 p.m.
