Every summer we elect officers, senior directors, and junior directors who help plan the activities of the association for the coming year. We also have adult advisors who support the youth and we also host the annual TJSA Lassie Queen contest, which is for young ladies who wish to promote the Shorthorn breed. If you are interested in more information about our election positions please contact us at
