With the beef industry changing so rapidly, identifying and educating leaders to help guide and strengthen the industry has never been so important. Because NCBA serves the grassroots trade association representing the U.S. beef cattle industry, it is our responsibility to see that leadership development is successful. That is why we continue to offer Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC). The YCC tour has proven to be an effective vehicle in identifying and developing potential leaders. Over 950 cattlemen and women have graduated from the YCC program since its inception in 1980. Many of these alumni participate in committees and councils and even more serve on the board of directors. Several presidents and officers of NCBA and predecessor organizations have also participated in YCC. This program has become and will continue to be the cornerstone of leadership training efforts within the cattle industry. Please see the attachment linked below to find out how you can apply today!
