Nominations due Nov. 1 for ICA Hall of Fame

By Staff | Oct 7, 2011

AMES – Nominations for the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association Hall of Fame award are due Nov. 1.

The award annually honors a person who has contributed a great deal of time and effort in promoting the beef and cattle industry of Iowa.

Iowa has long occupied a dominant position in the cattle industry.

As a leading state in number of cattle fed and in beef cow numbers, the Iowa cattle industry has relied upon the dedication and foresight of many people.

The Hall of Fame award recognizes them for their role of keeping cattle production viable in Iowa.

The award will be presented at the ICA Annual Convention, Dec. 12-14 at The Meadows Event and Conference Center in Altoona.

“We would encourage ICA members to consider nominating anyone their county has recognized in the past 3-5 years,” said Trent Wellman, ICA’s membership communications manager.

“What better way to honor a valued member then to nominate them for the ICA Hall of Fame?”

The selection committee will consider the nominees’ overall contribution to the cattle and beef industry on the local, state and national levels through their career.

Also, activities and leadership in other groups or organizations will also be reviewed.

Besides the nomination form, also include any photographs, newspaper clippings, letters of recommendation, etc. to support the nomination.

Nomination from the past three years that were not selected are still in contention so they would not nominate them again.

Nomination forms can be found on the ICA website www.iacattlement.org.

Nomination forms can also be mailed out by calling the ICA offices at (515) 296-2266.
