Ballot Correction

Over the past week, ballots were sent out to all current members. Unfortunately, there was a mistake on them. We have two members running for our open Member at Large position. Their bios were included in the most recent newsletter, as were the ballots. The bio accurately reflects the names of both candidates, but the ballot does not. Please note the Travis Johnson was incorrectly listed as Travis Durham on the ballot. These are the same person. Our deepest apologies to Travis and our members for any confusion this may have caused.

KGBA Regions and Groups

Hi Everyone!

With the continued expansion of our member base, and Kinder goats becoming more popular by the day, we realized the need for an updated Region Map. It's not too different from the old one, but should be a great way to help members develop community with other Kinder owners and breeders in their area! To further this goal, we are also rolling out KGBA sanctioned Facebook groups in order to facilitate growth and networking among members and members-to-be! Each group will adopt the same group rules and guidelines as the main umbrella group, Kinder Goat Folks, in order to maintain a civil and upbeat group where all are welcome! Each group will also have at least one Board member as an Admin in case of emergency, but will be primarily admin'd by someone local to that region. Additional intent for these groups is to ensure that information about Kinder goats, opportunities for Kinder owners and breeders, communications from the KGBA BOD, etc, will be accurate and reliable. There may be other unofficial groups that claim to encourage growth and development of Kinders, but those not run or monitored by the association may not be accurate or credible. Please do not assume that claims, comments, or advice, made in other groups reflect the views of the KGBA, or discussions in unofficial groups will be seen or addressed by Board members.

Here is the updated Region Map

Hello KGBA Members!!

If you have been an active member since March 1st of this year and are interested in helping the association, please consider volunteering for a board position.
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
The elected term is 1-3 years, with directors spending an average of 5-10 hours a month managing the affairs of the association. All positions are volunteer and therefor unpaid positions. If interested, please contact us at kindergoatbreeders@gmail.com before September 24th. Please include a short (no more than half-page) bio to be included with ballots when expressing interest in candidacy. Hopefully we will see new faces with new ideas on the upcoming ballots!
