Executive Director is Stepping Down

Arizona Cattle Growers’ members and friends,

In the May 2020 issue of the Arizona Cattlelog, ACGA’s Executive Director Gaither Martin stated: “I would also like to announce that my family and I have decided to pursue new opportunities, and I will be stepping down as the Executive Director effective July 1, 2020.

“Many of our members I have known for years and others I only met in relation to this position. It has been on honor to represent you at the State and Federal levels. The Cattle Growers’ have a long and storied history in our state, of which I am grateful to have been a part. ACGA is positioned to lead the charge protecting our way of life for generations to come. Most of all, I would simply like to say thank you!”

President Elkins followed up this announcement with: “I would like to thank Gaither Martin for his dedication towards protecting the Arizona ranching industry during his time as Executive Director. I wish him the best as he pursues new opportunities and raises his young family!
