Reach Out!

There are a number of social media forums set up for Kinder goat owners, but they are not all accessible to all of our members or monitored by our board. Because of this, we recommend that anyone with questions or suggestions for the board of directors contact us directly. You can do this a number of ways:  

Call or email any or all of us directly using our contact info here

Contact us through the general comment link on the website.

Comment anonymously on the lower portion of your election ballot.

Respond directly below any of the posts on the communique.

We will publish all general questions, comments and suggestions on the communique and/or the next newsletter with an official response from the board. We will continue to explore more ways to make communication better and easier, but hopefully this will prove to be a good start.  

On that note, our members have been discussing lots of things recently, and the board of directors have been listening! Thank you to all that have made constructive suggestions on how to improve our association – it is your input that helps us continue to make the KGBA better every day.

Please stay tuned for upcoming announcements regarding membership directories, breeders listing updates, treasurer reports and other responses to recent suggestions!
