2021 AOA Election Announcement
Renew your Membership before May 3 to vote in the Upcoming Election!
To vote in the upcoming election, you must be an Association or Registry member, at least 18 years old, and own at least 25% of a live AOA-registered alpaca. The deadline for becoming a member is May 3, 2021. If you have not yet renewed or upgraded your membership, you can do so on your dashboard after logging in at www.AlpacaInfo.com. As a reminder, individuals, not farms, are AOA members; therefore, spouses or partners must have their own individual memberships to be eligible to vote in the election.
We encourage everyone to take part in the election process. This year in addition to electing three board members, there will be several bylaw amendments to vote on.
