July 25, 2018

More than 80 members of the National Junior Hereford Association are gearing up for a trip to California for the Faces of Leadership Conference August 1-4, 2018.

The Faces of Leadership Conference focuses on leadership development for Junior members from all parts of the country. During the three-day event, 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.

Previous conference locations have included South Dakota State University, Colorado State University, Kansas State University and West Texas A&M University. This conference is offered to junior members ages 14-21. Intermediate and senior members will benefit the most from Faces of Leadership.

Some highlights of this year’s trip will include the scenic Golden Gate bridge, a keynote address with Kenny Aronoff, Influential speaker and best-selling author. Participants will also get to tour Sierra Ranches, a robotic dairy, Ratto Brothers Inc. fresh produce, Pedretti Ranches, RPAC Almonds and Hilmar Cheese Company. The events will conclude with an evening aboard the Hornblower Dinner Cruise.
