Holstein Association USA's 2022 delegate election process is currently underway. Each year, members have the opportunity to nominate members from their state to serve as voting delegates at the following year's Holstein Association USA Annual Meeting, held in conjunction with the National Holstein Convention. The 2022 Annual Meeting will be held in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, June 30 – July 1.

Important Deadlines

Here are the important deadlines to take into account:

July 30 - Nominating petitions mailed to members
September 24 - Nominating petitions must be received by Holstein Association USA
October 8 - Deadline for nominees to withdraw names from the ballot
October 29 - Ballots mailed to members
December 31 - Ballots must be received by Holstein Association USA
February 1, 2022 - 2022 delegate election finalized

Typically, members become ineligible to serve as a delegate after serving as a delegate at three consecutive Annual Meetings. With the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Meeting, that requirement was waived for the 2021 delegate election. With the clock re-set, all members are eligible to be nominated as a delegate for 2022.
