At the annual meeting on February 28th, World Beef Expo voted to elect Shane Miller and Bruce Thorsen as new Board of Directors. Andy Hornung was re-elected as a Board of Director. The World Beef Expo Board of Directors consists of nine members with terms of three years and can serve a maximum of two terms in a row.
The retiring Board of Directors, Kim Jones and Dick Hauser, contributed a great deal to World Beef Expo. Coming up with unique awards annually as well as leading sponsorship efforts, Kim Jones strived to increase World Beef Expo’s image and exposure. As Dick Hauser assisted Trade Show Vendors throughout the years, he was striving to give them a great show experience. Their time and efforts was very appreciated by all involved in World Beef Expo.
