Angus Outreach Seminars Return
to Allow Information and Idea Exchange

The American Angus Association is continuing a series of Outreach Seminars that began last year in an effort to boost communication with members. The Outreach Seminars, planned to take place across the nation, will allow Association staff to provide updates on programs, including AngusSource and performance program enhancements.

In addition, breeders will have an opportunity to provide input to Association staff and Board members during interactive discussions about ways the Association can best serve members today and in the future. A series of Outreach Seminars is scheduled for December, with more in the planning phases for early 2005.

"The Outreach Seminars that we conducted last year were very popular, and it is a great way to communicate one-on-one with our producers," says Jim Shirley, vice president of industry relations for the Association. "We encourage our producers to attend one of these sessions to share their ideas with the staff, while we share new information about their Association programs with them."
