Summit Conference

The Summit IGS Youth Leadership Conference is an opportunity where juniors ages 14 – 21 have the ability to not only develop leadership skills that can be used in their future, but also a place where they are able to gain new friendships, experience a new college campus and expand their knowledge on the current issues of the agricultural industry. The weekend event is held in the summer at a different major university each year to give youth a feel for a college setting and to experience what that college offers. Participation is not limited to Shorthorn juniors; anyone interested in the agricultural industry is encouraged to attend!

The AJSA is partnering with the Gelbvieh, Simmental, Limousin and Chianina Associations to bring a joint leadership conference that will take place every other year (odd years). Contact for questions.
