Convention, Convention, Convention...
Updated: Apr 30, 2019
We are a member-driven organization - come to convention to be a part of the policy making process, voting process, and come to learn!
This will be a great opportunity to learn something that we can bring home to improve our own bottom lines. + Policy is what directs the officer team and staff through the year. Members will have the opportunity to attend these meetings and in turn be a part of the policy making process.

Our staff: Summer, Ashlee and Gaither, along with the executive committee (especially Billy Elkins), have been working diligently on our upcoming convention. The program is coming together nicely with nationally known speakers and participants that are scheduled to come and share their expertise with us. We will have folks from Cattlefax, Tyson Foods, Burke Tiechert, and other industry experts participating. The information presented will range from what is happening in the beef market today to how to operate a ranch more efficiently with higher production and thus more revenue. This will be a great opportunity to learn something that we can bring home to improve our own bottom lines.
The committee meetings are scheduled and topics are being formalized for each. This is very important because of the policy that is set in each of these meetings. This policy is what directs the officer team and staff through the year. Members will have the opportunity to attend these meetings and in turn be a part of the policy making process.
We will be presenting a new set of by-laws for ACGA - not because we are trying to change the way the organization has operated in the past, but to update them to meet today's needs. Our legal council has advised us that this is necessary.
Additionally, it is an election year. The nominating committee is working hard gathering candidates and creating a slate to present to our membership. As a membership-driven organization, every member needs to let their voice be heard by being present and voting. Get involved in the process now by contacting Andy Groseta (928-300-6621) or your county president.
Lastly, let's talk about convention registration! The executive committee has been working to ensure that the convention is affordable! Registration is only $50, and hotel rooms are $85 each night. The value received for the cost will be outstanding. Be sure to be there! Register now to receive these early bird rates!
