National Dairy Shrine Annual Meeting & Awards Banquet

Every year the National Dairy Shrine has an annual meeting open to the public to update the membership on NDS activities of the past fiscal year. Reports are given by NDS Directors on the accomplishments over the past year as well as plans for the future. A financial report is also given. The NDS membership then votes to elect the new members on the Board of Directors. This public meeting precedes the NDS annual reception and awards banquet.

The banquet reception starts approximately one hour before the banquet and allows for socializing and networking with other dairy enthusiasts as well as scholarship winners and honorees.

The annual awards banquet highlights the past, present and future of the dairy world. Students receive numerous scholarships, current dairy leaders are honored for their success and prominent dairy leaders are honored for their lifetime of work by their election into the National Dairy Hall of Fame.
