July FCW Report

It’s hard to believe that we are in the month of July and middle of summer. The Summer Conference will be held July 12-16 at the Hyatt Regency in Denver, Colorado. The American National CattleWomen will also be holding meetings at that same time. The ANCW will have a Silent Auction during this event. President-Elect, Michelle Grimmer, and I will travel to the Summer Conference and attend the ANCW meetings.

The Florida CattleWomen are in need of members to assist with various Committees of the association. The association is in need of new event ideas to participate in to help broaden our message about Beef and promote the industry. If you are interested in being a part of the association and would like to serve on a committee, please contact me.
