Re: Changes to Association Name and Included States
Date: July 11, 2017
The Board of Directors of the Southern Aberdeen Breeders Association thanks each of you for your consideration and response to the request for ratification of amendments to our association name and bylaws.
Members were asked to ratify two changes to the association name. The association, formerly called ‚ “Southwest Lowline Angus Breeders Association, is now named ‚ “Southern Aberdeen Breeders Association. The new name also reflects the addition of two states, Mississippi and Alabama, to our region. The Bylaws are hereby amended, and an amended Certificate of Formation is being filed with the Texas Secretary of State. This process takes about three weeks, so any checks made to the association should be made to‚ “SLABA ‚ until the new corporate filings are completed.
Ballots were mailed to each of our 143 Active Members. A total of 64 ballots were returned. There were 59‚ “For ‚ votes, and 3 ‚“Against ‚ votes. Two returned ballots were not counted. One because no selection had been marked and one was postmarked a day late.
We are excited for the future of our American Aberdeen breed and our new seven-state regional partnership. Once again, thanks for participating in the voting process. Your opinion is important, and constructive comments are always welcome.
