Red Angus Association of America’s national office transitions to Denver area
The rapidly growing Red Angus Association of America will soon be operating out of its new headquarters in Commerce City, Colorado, located in close proximity to Denver International Airport. RAAA’s Board of Directors approved the relocation of the National Office during the fall of 2016, and the transition is nearing completion.
In late-June, the address of the RAAA headquarters changed from Denton, Texas, to Commerce City, Colorado, a suburb located on the east side of Denver. Staff has been working in both states during June to ensure continued service to Red Angus stakeholders but, after almost 50 years, Texas operations will cease in early July.
“We appreciate the continued understanding of our members and staff as we transition to our new location,” said RAAA Chief Executive Officer Tom Brink. “Our goal is for member services to remain as steady as possible with minimal interruption. The functionality of our REDSPro database improves weekly as we prepare for its full release to our membership later this summer.”
The RAAA Board of Directors carefully considered the move to Colorado, ultimately deciding it was beneficial to locate the Association’s headquarters more centrally relative to its members, customers and the U.S. livestock industry as a whole.
“The National Office will be closer to a higher percentage of our membership,” explained Brink, “enabling easier and less-expensive travel. Plus, the Denver area is a major livestock hub, making it an ideal location for our Association’s national office.”
Some staff members naturally chose to remain in Texas and will be retiring or moving on from RAAA. Additional staff in Colorado have been hired and are already at work in their new positions.
All correspondence should be sent to RAAA’s new Colorado mailing address: 18335 E. 103rd Ave., Suite 202, Commerce City, CO 80022. The (940) 387-3502 main phone number, corresponding extensions and fax numbers will remain the same for the foreseeable future.
RAAA Staff is planning an open house at the new office building to coincide with members’ travel plans during the National Red Angus Convention scheduled for Sept. 13 – 15 in Colorado Springs. Details will be available at RedAngus.org.
