DENVER – The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) said Monday that it is accepting applications for its chief executive position.

Terry Strokes, the current CEO, announced his resignation in September.

The job description is posted on www.BeefUSA.org. Qualified candidates need to submit their resume by Nov. 15 to Nancy Rudzek, Executive Director-Human Resources, NCBA, 9110 East Nichols Ave. Suite 300, Centennial, Colo., 80112, or by email at nrudzek@beef.org.  

The NCBA has formed a search committee. The committee reportedly includes a regionally diverse group of cattle producers and state executives from cattle association affiliates and state beef councils. 

“I want to thank these industry leaders for serving in this very important role,” said Andy Groseta, president of the NCBA. “The CEO of NCBA provides the overall vision and leadership to the industry’s one plan – one budget – one voice strategy.”

The search committee will review resumes, screen candidates and recommend two to four candidates to NCBA’s officers for final selection. A recruiting firm is not being engaged at this time.

“It is our aim to have a candidate in place by the beginning of 2009,” said Groseta.
