NJHA National Board Member
Twelve outstanding Hereford juniors serve each year on the NJHA Board of Directors. Every year, four board members are elected to three-year terms at the annual membership meeting which is held in conjunction with the Junior National Hereford Expo. During their term, directors develop and implement programs and events that serve junior Hereford members across the nation.
Traveling on behalf of the NJHA to various activities enables them to meet fellow members and to share their thoughts and experiences of Hereford involvement. They also get first-hand experience at leadership, cooperation and organization.
The NJHA Board also makes recommendations for new programs and ideas to the American Hereford Association Board of Directors, they help train other juniors and they promote the Hereford breed at various activities and events throughout the year.

All steers showing at the Junior National Hereford Expo must be registered by the American Hereford Association and out of a registered sire and dam. No steer certificates will be accepted, only registration papers. The AHA will still offer traditional steer certificates for those state and regional shows not requiring a registration paper on steers at this time.
