Volunteer Leaders Sought for ASI Councils
January 31, 2014

The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) is accepting nominations for councils and committees for the upcoming year. Council and committee members are instrumental in working for sheep producers by recommending and setting policy that designates direction for the industry. ASI has five councils with many related committees. The councils include wool, lamb, legislative, producer education and research and resource management. 
 
Council and committee positions are voluntary and are appointed to one-year terms. Anyone interested in being nominated to a council or committee should contact their state sheep producer association for submission to ASI. Nominations can also be forwarded to ASI officers, regional executive board members or to Peter Orwick, porwick@sheepusa.org, at the ASI office. 
 
The executive board will be meeting the last week of February to finalize appointments, therefore, to be considered, all nominations should to be submitted on or before Feb. 18. 
 
The heart and soul of ASI are the individuals who volunteer a portion of their time and energy to work on behalf of the industry. ASI is an organization for producers, run by producers!
