NCBA Dues Proposal

NCBA Dues Proposal

In late April 2015, a task force was formed by Kevin Kester, NCBA Policy Division Chair to review the possibility of a dues increase. The diverse task force consists of producers from across all sectors and regions of the industry, NCBA leadership, state affiliate executives and NCBA staff. The exercise was thorough, creative as well as an inclusive examination of the needs to best represent the membership going forward.

After an initial face-to-face meeting in Denver, three conference calls were held to arrive at this proposal. The task force unanimously approved presenting the proposal for discussion and action at the upcoming 2015 NCBA Cattle Industry Summer Conference.

Below is a comparison of the proposed NCBA dues and the current dues. If you have questions, contact Bill Hammerich (970) 378-0500 or email at bhammerich@coloradolivestock.org.
