Animal Agriculture Alliance Announces “30 for 30th” Membership Drive

Seeking to add 30 new members during the month of March

The Animal Agriculture Alliance, an industry-united nonprofit organization working to bridge the communication gap between farm and fork, launched a membership drive today in celebration of its 30th anniversary. The organization is seeking to add 30 new members during the month of March.

“If your company or organization is part of animal agriculture, now is the perfect time to join the Alliance,” said Allyson Jones-Brimmer, Alliance membership and marketing manager. “We have three decades of connecting stakeholders, engaging influencers and protecting the reputation and future of the industry. We’re ready to build on that history by welcoming new members and finding new ways to serve farmers and ranchers.”

Members who join as part of the 30 for 30th drive will receive recognition at the 2017 Stakeholders Summit, in addition to the benefits of Alliance membership. Membership begins at $500. Interested individuals and companies can learn more at www.animalagalliance.org/join.

Membership in the Alliance includes:

  • Access to all the Alliance's resources, such as farm security resources, information on anti-animal agriculture activist organizations, crisis management tips, and reports and graphics to help you share animal ag's story.
  • Action alerts and special reports on emerging issues facing animal agriculture.
  • Discounted registration for our annual conference, the Stakeholders Summit.
  • Depending on membership level, an invitation to join Alliance committees and have the honorarium waived for an Alliance staff member presentation for your organization.

Membership contributions – which are 100% tax-deductible - help support our mission to bridge the communication gap between farm and fork and protect the future of animal agriculture. A few of our current initiatives include:

  • Coordinating industry wide efforts, such as bringing together a supply channel committee to share ideas and resources to enhance engagement with the restaurant and retailer community and a working group to investigate activist groups' use of religion as a strategy to end modern animal agriculture and develop necessary resources to help stakeholders engage at a grassroots level.
  • Proactively engaging mainstream media about hot topic issues, working with trade media to share information with the industry and robustly utilizing social media to engage influencers and consumers.
  • A Meat Matters campaign to help people understand the role of meat and poultry in a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Monitoring anti-animal agriculture activist organizations.

The Alliance looks forward to welcoming 30 new members to share its resources with more industry stakeholders and grow its network to broaden the organization’s reach.
