Arizona Cattle Growers’ is excited to announce the 116th Annual Summer Convention registration is open!! The Convention will go on as planned and will be held July 16th – July 18th at We-Ko-Pa Resort and Convention Center. The tradeshow and festivities will open at 11:00 am on the 16th and end on the 18th at 3:30pm.
During the three-day event, families will enjoy a vast western trade show, auction night, awards, drawings, and a dinner and dance. Children will enjoy the Arizona Junior Livestock Association, along with many fun and educational activities. Attendees will learn more about topics such as private property rights, grants, Arizona branded beef, Arizona water, public lands, voluntary traceability, holistic management, and will have the opportunity to participate in committee meetings, hear department updates, enjoy Cattlemen’s College, and participate in policy discussions that will become the directives for the association.
Registration is $50 this year! The first 200 attendees will receive free meals with their registration. The next 200 attendees will be charge $175 to receive all meals and 400+ attendees will be charged $335 to receive all meals. The last day to reserve meals is June 23rd. In order to be financially smart, this slight alter from last year is due to the dynamics caused by Coronavirus. I encourage you to register today!
Summer Convention's theme is “Gather the Herd; Forge Ahead”. The meetings will highlight the benefits ranching sees from other segments of agriculture, agencies, and organizations. Just as last year, the Convention will be robust, valuable, and entertaining! It will be a Convention for the entire family to enjoy! It will be an event second to none. An event you will want to be at!
As we continue to plan, we are closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19). We will communicate via email with all attendees if the status of the event changes in any way. In the case of mandatory postponement or cancelation your payment will be refunded.
As we arise out of this uncertain time, keep calm, wash your hands, and stay home if you are sick. Know that Arizona Cattle Growers’ is going above and beyond every day to ensure you are receiving value and benefit for your membership. We will continue to implement additional benefits that will give you, your family, and your operation added value.
During this time, we are working closely with national organizations, state organizations, and government representatives to combat the cattle market crash and get to the bottom of the fall in prices.
We appreciate your membership, your continued efforts to raise beef, and your efforts to care for the environment. We welcome any ideas that will help us better serve you!
We look forward to seeing you at the Summer Convention and ask that you register today at www.azcattlegrowers.org.
