1. Developing Advocates and Leaders for the Beef Industry

Developing advocates and leaders for the beef industry is the goal of the Collegiate Beef Advocacy Program (CBAP). Hosted by American National Cattlewomen, Inc. (ANCW), the advocacy program provides an outlet for students to use their unique strengths to connect with consumers and peers to promote beef.

The collegiate advocacy program matches the vision and purpose of ANCW by ensuring the selected students strengthen their leadership and communication skills, establish career networks and enhance their knowledge of the industry. This experience will assist participants in furthering their passion for beef advocacy by providing top notch training, access to educational resources, and unique experiences. Career networks will be established between the advocates and industry professionals to build lifelong connections, with the goal to bring our team success as the future of our beef industry. Through this program participants will be enabled to become an integral voice for the beef community.

This program is designed to find the very best collegiate spokespersons and enable them to take their beef advocacy efforts to a national level.
