The current adult representatives from Areas III and IV will be completing their terms at the National Junior Holstein Convention this July. Applications must be submitted to Holstein Association USA by March 15, 2013.

Area III covers Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin; and Area IV includes Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Adult representatives are eligible to serve up to two two-year terms on the JAC. The committee meets annually, via conference call or in-person, to discuss Junior Holstein Association matters, and attendance at the National Junior Holstein Convention is mandatory, as the committee assists with coordinating events and carrying out activities. Travel and lodging expenses associated with serving on the JAC are covered by Holstein Association USA. This year's newly appointed representatives will start their official duties following the 2013 National Convention.

Ideal committee members will be knowledgeable about Junior Holstein programs; have a strong communication network with members in their designated area; must commit to attending designated JAC meetings; and must display the highest standards of ethics and commitment to youth programs.
