Conner, a member of the American Angus Association with headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo., is one of 332 Angus breeders who have been elected by fellow members in their state to serve as a representative at the annual meeting. Representing 43 states, District of Columbia and Canada, the delegates will participate in the business meeting and elect new officers and five directors to the American Angus Association board.
Josh Marksbury of Buffalo has been elected as an alternate delegate. He is among 306 Angus breeders selected as alternates.
(Editor’s note: Marksbury is still hospitalized following an Aug. 15 plane crash that occurred near Abraham Lincoln Elementary School.)
The annual convention is held in conjunction with a banquet and the Super Point Roll of Victory Angus show, Nov. 12-15, during the North American International Livestock Exposition.
The American Angus Association has nearly 30,000 active members and is the largest beef breed organization in the world.
