The Auxiliary Needs You!
We need you - whether you are a junior mom, entrepreneur, youth leader, retired Angus breeder or educator. Members from all walks of life involved in promoting or raising Angus cattle can become part of our organization. It is with teamwork that our organization keeps rolling along.
Members of our organization sign up for committees of interest to them. It is within these committees that you become involved at either the state, regional or national level. You don’t have to go to national events to be a part of this organization - we need assistance at all levels.
Each committee chairperson has a team of committee members whose job it is to work together to achieve the goals set by each committee and the officer team each year.
