Call for 2015 ASI Council and Committee Members

The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) is accepting nominations for members to its councils and committees for the upcoming year. Council and committee members are instrumental in working for sheep producers by recommending and implementing policy that designates direction for the industry. ASI has five councils with many related committees. The councils include wool, lamb, producer education and research, legislative and resource management.Council and committee memberships are voluntary and are appointed for terms of one year. Those interested in being nominated for re-appointment or as a new member should first be a member of your state sheep association and should contact your state 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. Anyone being nominated who is not currently on a council or committee should provide a short paragraph about themselves and their operation.

The executive board will meet in late February to finalize appointments. All nominations should to be submitted on or before Monday, Feb. 23, to be considered.

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!
