American Maine-Anjou Assn Seeks Executive Vice President

After more than a 25-year commitment to the American Maine-Anjou Association (AMAA), Executive Vice President John Boddicker will transition to retirement on December 1, 2015. In his AMAA tenure, he has fostered great leadership, encouraged progress and served the breed to the highest degree.

Boddicker is unmatched in his length of service and will pass the reins as the longest standing Maine-Anjou association leader in history. Additionally, he will retire with Maine-Anjou cattle registrations on the rise and overall strong financial standings of the breed.

“John’s passion to promote Maine-Anjou genetics while serving adult and junior members has been second to none,” said Cody Tebbenkamp, AMAA Executive Vice President Search Committee member. “While Maine-Anjou cattlemen and juniors will greatly miss John as he steps away from his role at AMAA, the vacancy must be filled.”

The Executive Vice President Search Committee will be accepting application until the position is filled, however highest priority will be given to applications submitted before February 4, 2015 to [email protected]

The new hire will assume full duties of this role on December 1, 2015, yet the Search Committee prefers for Boddicker’s successor to begin July 1, 2015. Competitive salary and benefits package will be offered. Relocation to the Platte City, Missouri area is required.

The AMAA Executive Vice President is the chief executive officer of the association. Responsibilities include implementation of policy and programs as developed by the AMAA Board of Directors, committees and membership.
