The Nebraska Cattlemen board of directors has announced a national search for a new executive Vice President replacing Michael Kelsey who will leave June 30th to assume the top spot at the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association.
"We are accepting resumes for this position until June 14th. At that time, our search committee will begin the process of interviewing the top candidates with a goal of having the successful candidate on staff September 1st," said NC president Dale Spencer.
"A job description for the position can be found on our website or interested individuals can call our Lincoln office and request a copy," Spencer added.
The board also approved the Executive Committee's recommendation to appoint Melody Benjamin, NC Vice President of Member Services as the interim executive after Kelsey leaves in late June and until a new executive is on board.
"We are blessed to have a very talented and professional staff that will keep us moving forward during this time of transition," remarked Spencer.
Kelsey's move to Oklahoma is a return to his home state. He was raised on a ranch and graduated from Oklahoma State with an Animal Science degree.
