Ranchers Stewardship Alliance August Meeting Agenda

We’re looking forward to having you join us at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11 via Zoom for our monthly Ranchers Stewardship Alliance meeting. The meeting information is below. 

Been curious about RSA but not sure how to get involved? This would be a great time to get started by joining a committee! This is where you can really make a difference in guiding the application of our mission: Ranching, Conservation, Communities — A Winning Team!

  • Workshop/education committee – Bring a speaker or topic idea you want to learn more about and help share it with the community.
  • Phillips County Proud Committee – Plan the social event of the season to celebrate ranching, conservation and communities!
  • Conservation Committee – Review and monitor the on-the-ground conservation work of RSA and our partners.
  • Communication/outreach Committee – Help share the story of how ranching, conservation and communities make a winning team!
  • Expansion Committee – Work with Winnett ACES leaders to find mutually beneficial relationships.
  • Fundraising Committee – Develop and execute fundraising plans to ensure a sustainable future for ranching, conservation and rural communities!

If one of those sparks an interest, but you’re unable to join us on Aug. 11, just email Laura at [email protected] and let us know you’d like to be notified of the committee’s work and meetings.
