December 30, 2013
NAEBA Directors Look Forward to 2014
HOWARD LAKE, MN- The North American Elk Breeders Association is proud to announce its membership has grown by ten percent in the first four months since the annual convention. The news comes as a positive sign for the New Year as NAEBA directors have a full list of objectives to accomplish in 2014.
President Kim Kafka was pleased with the association’s progress and outreach. “We have a lot of goals for 2014 and we are all pleased to have a strong membership support us as we move forward,” said Kafka.
Since the convention, NAEBA has employed an aggressive outreach program and membership drive to court new members and regain former ones. The new memberships derive from a combination of the initiatives, including the membership drive and outreach program. NAEBA also plans to have representation at upcoming state and provincial elk association meetings to strengthen the line of support across from their national association.
Executive Director Travis Lowe said, “NAEBA has ambitious goals for the next few years and we are seeing more support than we have in nearly a decade. It’s great, new members are joining from the east coast, Rocky Mountain States, Alberta and Saskatchewan and everywhere in between.”
The directors wish to remind members that the membership drive started November 1, 2013, and will run until July 30, 2014. Three prizes will be awarded to contest winners, which include mule deer, pheasant, and prairie dog hunts.
Lowe added, “It’s great to see elk farmers join because they want to help build our industry. We are working hard to improve membership services, open markets, and bring common sense to our regulations. NAEBA needs all of our members to thrive.”
