LEAD Conference

Each year a national junior leadership conference, called LEAD (Leaders Engaged in Angus Development) is held. This conference moves around the country to give more juniors the opportunity to participate. The programs are designed and carried out by the Junior Activities Department and NJAA Board of Directors in cooperation with the hosting state. This conference serves several purposes, which include guiding junior who will in turn take part in guiding their respective associations; providing an open line of communication for members of different associations to share ideas, plans, goals, etc.; and giving each individual an opportunity to take an active part, and in face, encouraging participation by everyone present. Juniors learn about setting goals for themselves and their association, and methods of accomplishing those goals. Not only is the responsibility and success of the association stressed, but also the responsibility, success and character of its individual members.
