Red Angus Association of America to Host Virtual Convention

DENVER, CO – In lieu of the National Red Angus Convention, originally scheduled for Sept. 23-25 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the Red Angus Association of America will be hosting  a virtual convention to provide members, producers and stakeholders with breed updates and insight into the Association’s year-end standing and future plans.

Sessions for the virtual convention will feature the State of the Association, President’s Address, an economic outlook from Dr. Derrell Peel and many committee report updates. All sessions will become available on the Red Angus website on Sept. 21.

“We wish we could be meeting face-to-face in Harrisburg,” said Tom Brink, CEO of the Red Angus Association of America. “However, since that is not possible, our team has put together a set of pre-recorded videos designed to mimic the information we provide at a normal National Red Angus Convention. It is our intent to keep members and commercial customers up to date with the progress of the breed and abreast of key RAAA activities.”

While canceling the 2020 National Red Angus Convention was a difficult choice to make, the virtual experience RAAA has assembled provides the next best opportunity for producers and stakeholders to connect with the RAAA leadership and staff.

The 2020 Red Angus virtual convention will launch on RedAngus.org on Sept. 21, 2020, and all sessions are available for free, without registering. For questions or more information, email media@redangus.org.

The Red Angus Association of America serves the beef industry by enhancing and promoting the measurable advantages of Red Angus and Red Angus-influenced cattle. The RAAA provides commercial producers with objectively described cattle by implementing new technologies and utilizing scientifically sound principles that quantify traits of economic importance to beef producers in all segments of the beef industry.
