Help Us Celebrate a Shining Star

The alpaca industry could not function without highly dedicated volunteers. Whether helping at a show, or serving on a board of directors, volunteers dedicate a tremendous amount of time to our industry. AOA, and previously ARI and AOBA, have benefited tremendously from the support and dedication of people throughout the industry. We need your help to recognize these outstanding individuals.

We are currently accepting nominations for the 2017 AOA Shining Star Award. This award will be given to an individual or individuals, a group of people, or even an AOA affiliate to recognize their efforts and dedication in supporting AOA and its initiatives. Please tell us who you think has served AOA unselfishly for the success of our industry.

Recipient Criteria for Recognition

  • If an AOA affiliate, the affiliate must be in good standing
  • Individuals must be Registry or Association Members of AOA in good standing
  • If an entity (groups of AOA members), all must be Registry or Association Members of AOA in good standing


The AOA Board of Directors will review all nominations and select the recipient(s). The Shining Star award will be presented in March during the National Show in Denver, Colorado.


All nominations must be received by Wednesday, February 1, 2017, via the Shining Star Nomination Form.

If you have any questions, please contact the AOA Office at 402-437-8484.
