The Summit – IGS Youth Leadership Conference



The AGJA has teamed up with the American Junior Shorthorn Association and the American Junior Simmental Association for The Summit, IGS Youth Leadership Conference. The Summit is open to all youth ages 14-22 in the beef industry but be sure to register soon, only 100 spots are available and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration deadline will be announced very soon.

The Summit Conference is not only an opportunity for juniors to gain industry knowledge and leadership skills that can be used in the future, but it is also a place where juniors are able to create new friendships, experience a college campus and be exposed to current issues affecting the agriculture industry.

Contact AGA Member and Youth Programs Coordinator Jake Renner at or by calling (303) 465-2333 with any questions.
