Holstein Association USA's 2023 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 2023 Annual Meeting will be held in Lexington, Kentucky June 26 - 27.

Important Deadlines

Here are the important deadlines to take into account:

August 1 - Nominating petitions mailed to members

September 30 - Nominating petitions must be received by Holstein Association USA

October 14 - Deadline for nominees to withdraw names from the ballot

October 31 - Ballots mailed to members

December 30 - Ballots must be received by Holstein Association USA

February 1, 2023 - 2023 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, the clock re-set and all members are eligible to be nominated as a delegate for 2023.
