Shape the Industry through Service on an AOA Committee

AOA currently is seeking members interested in helping to shape the industry by serving on an AOA committee. We currently are expanding the membership of two committees.

Government and Industry Relations Committee (GIRCom)

GIRCom would like to add members to its committee. Ideal candidates would have writing skills and experience with legislative and regulatory activities.

GIRCom actively monitors livestock health and regulation issues. GIRCom maintains an industry presence in the U.S. Animal Health Association (USAHA).

Membership Committee

The Membership Committee is recruiting additional members that have an interest in growing the AOA membership.

The Membership Committee reviews current membership levels to determine if they contain the appropriate services, develops ideas for adding value to paid memberships along with an education strategy to show the value of an AOA membership, and researches potential new paid membership levels. Currently the committee is researching the possibility of creating a youth and a fiber membership category.

For more information on AOA committees, read Policy 01–04 online at

If you are interested in serving on any of these committees, please complete the Committee Disclosure form at by March 3, 2019.
