NCBA Board of Directors meeting sees new officers instated

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The NCBA Board of Directors meeting saw the passing of new resolutions and directives as well as the passing of the torch to new officers for 2014.

Forrest Roberts, CEO of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, spoke to attendees about what he saw as one of the most important advantages of the association currently – momentum.

“This is…the fastest growing cattle association in the nation,” Roberts said.

With this momentum in mind, Roberts reminded the directors and other attendees of the need to engage.

“As we move forward, engage like you have never engaged before,” Roberts said.

Scott George, president NCBA, presided over the meeting, which included the passing of resolutions regarding futures trading, Beef Quality Assurance and Beef Quality Assurance auditing and directives regarding importing beef and live animals from Brazil and Argentina, developing a sustainability statement, enhancing the Beef Checkoff and supporting the Grazing Improvement Act.

After George guided the board through business, he recognized incoming President Bob McCan, who spoke optimistically about the upcoming year.

“There’s a lot of things we can get accomplished,” McCan said. “I think we can effect positive change.”

McCan also called on the directors to be an integral part of conducting the association’s business over the next year.

“With your support and guidance, I’m sure we can take this journey together and get the job done,” McCan said.
