KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The American Angus Association® is making preparations for the 2020 Annual Convention of Delegates, hosted in conjunction with the Angus Convention Nov. 7-9 in Kansas City, Missouri.
In accordance with the Association bylaws, forms have been mailed to every eligible voting active life and regular Association member who qualified as an eligible voting member to nominate delegates to the annual meeting.
The nomination period is April 13 to June 12, and each eligible voting member is allowed to nominate one eligible voting member who resides in the same state or district, including himself or herself. More information is available here.
The candidate should be highly involved in the Angus business, willing to attend the meeting and able to represent Angus breeders.
The American Angus Association offers an online nomination option for the convenience of the membership. By using a unique number provided to each eligible voting member, the nomination can be made online. Nominations submitted online must be completed no later than 4:30 p.m., CDT June 12.
If the traditional printed form is used to nominate, the signed nomination form must be received in the Association office no later than 4:30 p.m., CDT on June 12.
Due to restrictions in place by the City of St. Joseph as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Association is operating with a limited in-building staff. While nominations may be submitted online or mail, it is requested that those with the capability to submit nominations online do so.
Following the close of the nomination period, every qualified nominee will be included on a state/district ballot. Ballots will be mailed to the eligible voting members in July to vote for the final slate of state/district delegates.
The Annual Convention of Delegates will take place Monday, Nov. 9, during the Angus Convention in Kansas City, Missouri. Online registration for the convention will begin July 1, and further information will be available at www.angusconvention.com.
