ASI Accepting Nominations for Sheep Center, ALB
April 13, 2018

The American Sheep Industry Association is accepting nominations for directors to serve both the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center and the American Lamb Board.

Recognized as a nominating organization by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, ASI will accept applications through May 11 for positions with both entities before forwarding qualified applicants by USDA's May 25 deadline.

There are two vacancies on the NSIIC board - one for a sheep producer and one for an individual with expertise in finance and management. Nomination forms for the sheep center are available at http://sheepusa.org/Resources_AlliedOrganizations_NsiicNominations.

On the American Lamb Board, there are four openings: a producer with 101 to 500 lambs, a producer with more than 500 lambs, a feeder with 5,000 or more lambs and one first handler. Nomination forms are available at http://sheepusa.org/Resources_AlliedOrganizations_AlbNominations.

Anyone interested in applying for either NSIIC or ALB should first consult with representatives from their state sheep association. Applications should be submitted to ASI Executive Director Peter Orwick at porwick@sheepusa.org and nominations will be considered by the association's executive board.
