To the families of the American Gelbvieh, Shorthorn, and Simmental Junior Associations, we hope that you have all remained safe and healthy throughout these unique circumstances we have been going through with COVID-19. While many states are beginning to release restrictions on events, gathering sizes, etc. there are still many businesses and organizations that will remain restrictive for added safety precautions. After much deliberation and speaking with the entities, families and industry-leading partners we planned to visit during the IGS Youth Leadership Conference- The Summit during the summer of 2020 the verdict was that many of our planned tours and events would not likely be opening their doors to visiting groups of our size by the end of the summer. Along with our wish, as your Coordinators, to provide the Summit delegates with an event worthy of your time and financial commitment we have made the difficult decision to cancel The Summit for 2020. The safety and health of our members, and the families awaiting their return, are of the utmost importance to our organizations. With that, please stay tuned for more information on the 2021 Summit plans! As always, we wish you all the best and hope to see you very soon! For questions please reach out to your Junior Coordinator directly.

Have a great summer and stay safe.
