The purpose of the North American Limousin Junior Association is to develop knowledgeable, motivated beef industry leaders, while promoting the Limousin breed through fellowship, leadership and education.

A one-time membership fee and an annual activity fee opens NALJA membership to anyone age 21 and younger. NALJA members enjoy special member rates on all registrations and other NALF services, receive the NALJA News newsletter, and take part in setting the direction of NALJA through an annual meeting.

NALJA members may participate in NALJA leadership conferences – such as the POWER conference – as well as the national junior show and regional shows during the summer.

Membership Application

The initial cost of a junior membership is $50. This fee activates the Junior membership for the current year and the following calendar year. After this time, Junior members pay a $25/year activity fee to qualify for active member rates and to show at NALF and NALJA sponsored events.

Board of Directors

The North American Limousin Junior Association (NALJA) has a governing board of 10 junior directors. In addition to those 10 directors, the immediate past president of NALJA serves as an Ex-officio member of the board. Directors are elected to two-year terms and are eligible to serve two terms.

Their main purpose is to plan national programs and activities for the membership. The Junior Board’s primary responsibility is to organize, plan and run the National Junior Limousin Show & Congress (NJLSC) each summer. They also represent the Limousin breed at state and regional field days and at the Youth Beef Industry Congress (YBIC), which is a three-day seminar sponsored by the U.S. Beef Breeds Council and other industry groups and businesses.
