Holstein Association USA’s 2021 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 2021 Annual Meeting will be held in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, June 23 – 24.
Here are the important deadlines to take into account:
August 1 – Nominating petitions mailed to members
September 25 – Nominating petitions must be received by Holstein Association USA
October 9 – Deadline for nominees to withdraw names from the ballot
November 1 – Ballots mailed to members
December 31 – Ballots must be received by Holstein Association USA
February 1, 2021 – 2021 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 will be waived and all members will be eligible to be nominated and serve as a delegate.
