Juniors who have not served as a UJSSA Director must apply for to be a UJSSA Director Intern, a one year term, before being eligible to be a Director.

All applicants will be notified whether or not they will be selected for the interview process. Candidates shall not have reached their 22nd birthday prior to January 1st of the year in which they finish their final term. Those elected in 2018 begin serving as directors effective with the July 8, 2018 UJSSA Annual Meeting.
UJSSA members elect the President (Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer are elected by the Directors from among themselves) during the UJSSA annual meeting. Directors who have served on the UJSSA Board of Directors for at least one year are eligible for election as officers of the organization.
The nominations for President will be taken at the end of the banquet. Speeches by the nominees will take place during the Saturday evening banquet. The voting will be done by ballot at the banquet after speeches have been made. The new President will be announced at the banquet after the votes have been tallied.
UJSSA officers and directors are expected to attend the 2018 and 2019 National Junior Suffolk Shows, assist with fundraising for the junior show and junior promotional projects, attend the UJSSA Director meeting at NAILE in Louisville, Kentucky in November and promote interest in the Suffolk breed and membership in UJSSA through various promotional and educational activities.
UJSSA officers are expected to participate in all UJSSA Board conference calls. If a Director is absent for two consecutive meetings or conference calls they will be relieved of their position on the board.
