2017 ABBA Membership Convention, Sept. 22-23
The 2017 ABBA Membership Convention will be held at the beautiful Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Be sure to make plans now to attend by submitting your registration form, making your hotel reservations and being sure to see details on the opportunity to spotlight your ranch by becoming a sponsor!
This year’s Membership Convention will be held in the “Sunshine State” of Florida at the luxurious Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center. This unique property has everything located under one roof! The ABBA has made reservations for a Golf Day for those members who would like to come early to enjoy the beautiful golf range with tee time starting in the afternoon. A Spa Day has also been arranged for the ladies to take some time to relax and enjoy the luxurious spa treatments they have to offer. Be sure to come early and enjoy these activities!
This year the convention will have a new twist, rather than sitting in a meeting room, presentations will be held on tour buses in between the planned ranch visits to Deseret, Kempfer Cattle Company and Chapman Ranch. Members will be learning about the latest technology and industry practices while touring some of the greatest ranches in Florida.
ABBA encourages all our members to attend this convention, it will allow for a great opportunity to meet and visit with fellow members in a warm atmosphere and venue. We hope to see you there!
