The American Angus Association will continue a series of Outreach Seminars in effort to boost communications with the membership. A series of Outreach Seminars are planned for early January in Billings, Mont.; Pasco, Wash.; and Galt, Calif. Association staff will travel to these sites to provide updates on Association programs including AngusSource and current performance program enhancements.
In addition, breeders will have an opportunity to provide input to Association staff and directors during interactive discussions about ways the Association can best serve members today and in the future.
"We will be meeting in three Western states to update our members on the latest happenings with their Association programs," says Jim Shirley, vice president of industry relations for the Association. "We encourage our producers to attend one of theses sessions to share their ideas with the staff."
The first meeting will be January 4, 2005 in Billings, Mont. The meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the Hampton Inn, 5110 South Gate Dr. A second seminar will begin at 6 p.m., January 5 in Pasco, Wash. It will be at the Red Lion, 2525 N. 20th Ave. The third Outreach Seminar for the week is set to begin at 1 p.m., January 7 at the Cattlemens Livestock Market, 12496 Stockton Blvd., at Galt, Calif.
More Outreach Seminars are being planned throughout the Eastern and Southern regions of the U.S. The meetings will last approximately three hours. Reservations are not required. However, those interested in attending are encouraged to reply to Linda Campbell at 816-383-5143 or at email@example.com, so staff can plan appropriately.
