All cattle producers, cattle industry representatives, salesmen, and anyone interested in helping advance and improve the beef cattle industry is invited to become a member of the DeKalb County Cattlemen’s Association!
There has been a meeting scheduled to officially create the DeKalb County Cattlemen’s Association. It will take place on Thursday, March 20 at the UT Extension office at 7:00 p.m. The dues for the first year will be $20 per person. The draft copy of the bylaws will be available for viewing. At approximately 7:30 p.m., we will convene with those people who have paid their $20 association dues to vote on the creation of the association and the bylaws. After that vote takes place, then we will proceed with the election of the officers and board of directors. The following positions will be elected… President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and 2 At-Large board members. These 5 positions will form the board of directors, along with the County Extension Agent who will serve in an ex-officio capacity. The association will need a group of dedicated, hard working individuals who are willing to commit some time and effort to the association to help it grow, especially during its first year.
Mr. Charles Hord, Executive Vice President of the Tennessee Cattlemen Association plans on being at the meeting on March 20. He will be able to assist us in the process of forming the association and will also be available to answer questions you may have about the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association. If you would like to also join the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association, and have not already paid your dues for the year, those dues are $30 for the year and can be paid on March 20.
Don’t miss out by joining during the 1st year of existence! Look forward to seeing you on Thursday, March 20 at the UT Extension office.
