About Young Producers’ Council

NCBA’s Young Producers Council (YPC) is a group for NCBA members between the ages of 18 and 35. Opportunities for YPC members include a voting membership on NCBA policy group committees, professional development and leadership activities, networking opportunities, continuing education and career information, targeted communications and special offers and services.

YPC was formed July 2008, and members met for the first time during the Cattle Industry Annual Convention & Trade Show Jan. 29, 2009, in Phoenix. The group elected an interim chair and vice chair and made recommendations for appointments to policy group committees.
