SAINT JOSEPH, MO
American Angus Association® members interested in becoming more involved in the agriculture industry still have time to apply for the seventh annual Beef Leaders Institute (BLI).
Held June 23-26 the program brings Angus producers together in Saint Joseph, MO, for a series of informative sessions, followed by a three-day tour across several industry segments.
Applications for BLI are due March 1.
"This is one event you won't regret attending," says Robin Ruff, Association director of activities, events and education. "From a behind the scenes look to the connections made, BLI is an opportunity of a lifetime."
BLI is designed for Association members 25-45 years old to provide insight into the beef industry, while enhancing their knowledge of the Association and strengthening leadership skills.
During the three-day event, BLI participants are able to tour a beef harvesting and packing facility, retailer, fabricator, feedlots and other industry segments, including the Association.
Funded through the Angus Foundation, the Association provides transportation, lodging, meals and materials during BLI. Attendees will be responsible for round-trip transportation between their home and either Kansas City or Saint Joseph, MO.
