Holstein Association USA to Host Nine Regional Member Meetings

Holstein Association USA to Host Nine Regional Member Meetings

Holstein Association USA is currently planning nine regional member meetings that will be held nationwide between December 2011 and March 2012. Members are encouraged to attend the meeting in their area to hear the latest updates on Association business, and provide feedback on programs and services. At least one member of the Holstein Association USA board of directors and one staff member will lead each meeting, so it is an excellent opportunity for face-to-face interaction with Association leadership.
