Organizations holding summer meetings during the conference include the CBB; the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA); the American National CattleWomen (ANCW); Cattle-Fax; and the National Cattlemen’s Foundation. General business kicks off with a Beef Industry General Session on Thursday, July 16, focused on current industry conditions and challenges. At the CBB Update Session that afternoon, CBB members will discuss current checkoff issues, including contracting budgets and updates on current USDA initiatives affecting the beef industry.
Preceding committee and subcommittee meetings, General Session II on Friday morning, July 17, will set the stage for this important day. Checkoff leadership will present the challenges and opportunities facing the beef industry in the coming year to prepare committee members for their review of project proposals for Fiscal Year 2010, so it is an important session for all joint committee members to attend.
By clicking on the “Committees” link at the top left of this meeting blog, you can access agendas for individual committee meetings — and then come back after the meetings for reports from them and, later, official minutes of the proceedings.
