New Orleans to Host Angus Youth Conference

New Orleans to Host Angus Youth Conference

Early registration for the annual youth leadership conference ends June 15.

Youth from across the country will travel to New Orleans, La., for the National Junior Angus Association's annual Leaders Engaged in Angus Development conference, Aug. 1-4. Themed "Cajun Livin' Angus Leadin'," the leadership event is designed for members 14-21 years of age.

"The weekend will be full of surprises," says Robin Ruff, American Angus Association director of junior activities. "The NJAA Board of Directors is working diligently to make LEAD one of the best events of the summer."

Early registration for the annual youth leadership conference ends June 15.

Angus juniors will attend leadership workshops presented by the NJAA Board, as well as listen to professional speakers Eddie Slowikowski and Amy Gallimore, plus Ag Minute Host, Kristen Oaks. Tours during this year's LEAD conference will give attendees a look into Louisiana culture as they visit the World War II museum, Mardi Gras World, the Jackson Square in the French Quarter, and take a ride down the Mississippi river on the historic Steamboat Natchez.

In addition, junior members will aboard a guided swamp tour, learn about Louisiana's sugar cane history at the Evergreen Plantation, and visit the 7L Farms and Land Company.

Conference space is limited, and early registration is encouraged by the June 15 deadline. The early registration fee for NJAA members is $200.

After June 15, registration will be $225 and accepted based on space availability. Registration for adults, state advisors and chaperones is $250; no early registration deadline applies.
