NASHVILLE, TN (February 2, 2017) – For more than 20 years, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association's (NCBA) Political Action Committee (PAC) has been the political arm of the largest national trade association representing U.S. cattlemen and women. NCBA-PAC raises funds from personal voluntary contributions from NCBA members and pools those contributions together to support political candidates who support the U.S. beef cattle industry. The PAC gives cattle producers access and visibility the industry needs to have its voice heard on Capitol Hill. Individual PAC contributions enable NCBA to participate as a serious player in the competitive political environment in Washington, D.C., and in political races across the country.
This week at the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in Nashville, TN, the Northern Ag Network’s Russell Nemetz talked with NCBA PAC Committee Chairman Jim Strickland from Florida about the PAC’s importance to the NCBA and its members nationwide.
The Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show is February 1-3, 2017 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort Hotel. For more information, visit www.beefusa.org.
