The following is a press release from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association:
WASHINGTON (May 22, 2012) – J.D. Alexander, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) president, said cattlemen and women need to register today to attend the 2012 Cattle Industry Summer Conference to secure a spot at what he said will be an action-packed conference. Alexander said the conference, which will be July 25-28, 2012, in Denver, will give cattle farmers and ranchers an opportunity to engage in NCBA’s grassroots policy process while also networking with and learning from other cattlemen and women from across the country.
“With challenges of overreaching regulations coming from the Beltway threatening our ability to raise cattle, coupled with obstacles from Mother Nature and more, it is critical for all NCBA members to take an active role in shaping the future of our industry and our organization,” Alexander said. “I’ve said it before, but if you don’t have a seat at the table; you’re probably on the menu. The 2012 Cattle Industry Summer Conference will give cattlemen and women the opportunity to take their seat at the table.”
Registration is available online. Alexander said summer conference is a critical step in NCBA’s grassroots policy process. He said resolutions being discussed today during county and state cattlemen’s meetings will be brought forward and voted on during summer conference.
“NCBA is the trusted leader and definitive voice serving the beef industry but in order to continue being successful and for our policy process to work, we need every member to be engaged,” Alexander said. “If you want a seat at the table in shaping the future of this industry, Denver is the place to be this July.”
