Raising the Bar Conference set for Nebraska

Each year, the National Junior Angus Association hosts several leadership trainings across the country that encourage Angus youth to “raise the bar” for their state and regional junior associations. The next Raising the Bar conference takes place Oct. 17-20 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Registration is due by Sept. 15.

“The NJAA has been conducting Raising the Bar conferences for seven years now,” says Jaclyn Upperman, American Angus Association director of junior activities. “The workshops are terrific opportunities, because they travel to different locations nationwide and equip juniors with the tools they need to make a positive impact on their respective organizations.”

Made possible through financial support from the Angus Foundation, Raising the Bar is open to five state officers and two state advisors from each state in the region. The intensive leadership training encourages officers to work together to build stronger teams, as well as develop regional relationships for both youth and adults.

The UNL conference will include workshops prepared and conducted by the NJAA Board of Directors, in addition to tours across the area. A few of the stops include the UNL campus; FELLER & CO., Wisner, Neb.; and Cargill Meat Facility, Schuyler, Neb.

To participate, submit a registration and medical release form to the Junior Activities Department, 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506. The $100 registration fee includes conference meals and hotel costs.

For more information about the leadership conference, visit or contact the junior activities department at 816-383-5100.

The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for nearly 7,000 active members nationwide.
