TSCRA Supports national Young Cattlemen's Conference (YCC)
With the beef industry changing so rapidly, identifying and educating leaders to help guide and strengthen the industry has never been so important.
TSCRA partners with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) to see that leadership development for both organizations is successful. That is why TSCRA is committed to sending at least three delegates each year to NCBA's Young Cattlemen's Conference (YCC).
The YCC tour has proven to be an effective vehicle in identifying and developing potential leaders. More than 950 cattle producers have graduated from the YCC program since its inception in 1980. Many of these alumni participate in committees and councils, and serve on boards of directors.
Several presidents and officers of NCBA and predecessor organizations have also participated in YCC. This program has become the cornerstone of leadership training in the beef cattle industry.
Each year, TSCRA sends representatives on the YCC trip. Representatives are chosen by an application and interview process. Applications are available on January 15 and due on March 1 of each year. Applications can be mailed to 1301 West 7th Stree, Suite 201, Fort Worth, TX 76102 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
