Angus Moves Annual Meeting to KC

Angus Moves Annual Meeting to KC

Plans move forward to host the annual event in Kansas City, Mo.

The American Angus Association announced Friday that its 2014 Annual Meeting will be a stand-alone event in Kansas City.

"We believe hosting the 2014 Annual Meeting in Kansas City will give us a chance to reach out to new areas of our membership and provide them with the education they need to be profitable in the cattle business," says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer.

The Association Board of Directors voted during its February 2013 meeting to begin planning for the Angus event in Kansas City. Tentative dates are set for Nov. 5, 2014, to Nov. 7, 2014, at the KCI Exposition Center – just 30 minutes from the Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo.

Plans move forward to host the annual event in Kansas City, Mo.

"Our main focus is to offer educational, business and social opportunities to our members and other users of Angus genetics," Schumann says. "We are developing an event that will truly stand out in the industry and serve all attendees well."

Preliminary event planning includes educational seminars and workshops, keynote speakers, and sessions to conduct Association business. Also being discussed is an extensive trade show featuring allied industry partners.

The Angus breed has held its Annual Meeting of Delegates in Louisville, Ky., since 1975. While the event has benefitted by being held in conjunction with the North American International Livestock Exposition, the Association deems a change is appropriate for 2014. Angus will continue many current traditions, such as the awards banquet and receptions.

"By conducting the Annual Meeting in a more central location, we hope more Angus breeders will be able to make the trip and celebrate the business breed with us," says Shelia Stannard, Association director of activities and events.

Angus events remain unchanged for 2013 and are scheduled for Nov. 16 – 19, along with NAILE livestock competitions. More information regarding the 2014 Angus Annual Meeting will be posted on the Association website as it is available.
