2. Funding - develop mechanism to provide stable funding from a membership base that will allow the AGA to access funding programs and provide value for our members, while expanding the role the AGA provides in the development of the Goat Industry in Alberta.
3. Industry Profile - work towards elevating the profile of the AGA within our own industry, to develop producer pride and feeling of ownership in their industry organization. As well to develop the profile of the Alberta Goat industry and its products with the general public, consumers and government. With the aim of taking our rightful place alongside other mainstream industries in the larger Agriculture industry.
The board works with the Alberta Government and the federal government to protect and further the interests of Alberta goat breeders, along with planning and organizing events such as our convention and other workshops. The AGA board also works developing educational materials, dealing with issues pertaining to biosecurity, traceability, disaster preparedness, livestock transportation standards, and a host of other topics. A board volunteer also built and maintains our website, another maintains our Facebook page. The board also works closely with our office and staff to see to the day to day operations of AGA.
