Each year new board members are elected at our annual meeting during the Michigan Shepherds Weekend. The number of open positions varies from year to year but often ranges from 3-5 positions. The responsibilities of an MSPA Board member include:

  1.  Membership in the Michigan Sheep Producers Association 
  2. Attendance at 3 of the 4 regular meetings of the MSPA; 2 of the 4 need to be in person; the remaining 2 can be via remote connection. The 4 regular meetings are: 
    • Late January or early February (organizational meeting) 
    • April 
    • July 
    • October 
    • *There is a very brief gathering of board members after the election to set a future meeting date 
  3. Vote on issues relevant to board business 
  4. Willingness to participate and offer ideas to accomplish the board’s mission. This can be via board committees, Shepherds Weekend, mentoring, promotion of the sheep industry in a variety of ways, etc.
