NAEBA Registration Office Changes Address to Minnesota Main Office

September 25, 2019


For all registry work needs moving forward, please use the following address:

North American Elk Breeders Association
9086 Keats Ave SW
Howard Lake, MN 55349
PH: 320-543-3665   Fax: 320-543-2983

Tena Martin will continue to do the registry work for NAEBA on a contract basis out of Howard Lake, MN. Her new phone number will be forwarded soon. In the meantime, all communications should go through the Howard Lake main office. 

NAEBA forms online have been updated and are available on our website by logging in the “members only section”. Please do not send mail to an office address in Kansas City. NAEBA hopes this change by consolidating office addresses to the single address in Minnesota will be easier for the membership.

Please be mindful of registry work timeline expectations as stated below and previously circulated to the membership. We ask members to remember to think ahead for registry work needs. NAEBA has NO ability to process orders from start to finish in the same week. Contract agreements for registry work do not provide this ability.

Please see below for a reminder of registry work timeline expectations.
