Hello Everyone!

Time has flown by this year, and I must apologize for being so lax in posting announcements! I hope to have a few up over the week, starting with today's announcement of election results.
Our members have elected the following people to the KGBA board for 2017:

President: Sue Beck, Wisconsin
Vice-President: Ashley Kennedy, Colorado
Treasurer: Lisa LaRose, Illinois
Secretary: John James, Ohio
Member at Large: Brenda Lee Shelt, Montana
Member at Large: Kathrin Bateman, Massachusetts

Thank you for the amazing response this year - we had the highest return rate yet! If you have any interest in running for a board position in the future, please contact us and we will happily put you on a list and contact you when election time rolls around again. In the meantime, please join me in welcoming our new member and welcoming back everyone else. We feel very lucky to have board members representing members across the United States, and look forward to another productive year with the KGBA!

Do you love Kinders and want to help our association excel? Volunteer for the Board Of Directors! 

The KGBA nominating committee is currently accepting volunteers and recommendations for the annual September election.  Any person holding an individual membership effective as of March 1st is eligible to be a candidate or recommend another for a position. Those running for the positions of President and Vice President must have a minimum of one year past experience on the board.

Thinking about running? Please consider your decision carefully - becoming a board member is a wonderful way to help our Association grow and improve and we want all the help we can get, but it takes time and commitment to make things happen! Directors serve without compensation. The elected term is 1-3 years, with directors spending an average of 5-10 hours a month managing the affairs of the association. 

Board members attend monthly board meetings via conference call, take part in various committees and work to promote the Kinder goat in accordance to our bylaws. Specific descriptions of each position can be found at www.kindergoatbreeders.com/bylaws.html

If you would like to volunteer or nominate someone else for a position, please contact a member of the nominating committee via email prior to August 10th. Please consider submitting a half-page bio (to included with ballots) when you express your interest in becoming a candidate. The 2016 Nominating Committee is comprised of the following people:

Sue Beck – sue@jabeck.com

Ashley Kennedy - thoroughbrednut@gmail.com 

Kathrin Bateman - kathrin@foxmountain.net


We look forward to hearing from you!

Ohio Sanctioned Kinder Goat Shows

The KGBA sanctioned Kinder Goat shows being held in Ohio are in less than a month! Whether you are able to bring goats or not, please try to join us for this great event. Shows will be held on Saturday and Sunday, and will be judged by two different judges - one NPGA judge and one ADGA judge. This is a great opportunity to have your goats assessed, meet other Kinder goat owners, relax and have a great time!

Show bill and entry forms can be found on the kGBA website at http://kindergoatbreeders.com/shows.html

Good luck to all participating goats and exhibitors!!

Fun with Kinders before the goat parade at a local show
