Denver – After 50 years of calling Denton, Texas, its home, the Red Angus Association of America has completed its relocation to Commerce City, Colorado. The new headquarters of the 63-year-old organization are well situated right outside of Denver, only 10 miles from Denver International Airport.
The determination to relocate was carefully considered by the RAAA Board of Directors for some time, which ultimately concluded it was the right choice for the Association’s headquarters. “Our Denton facility was showing its age, and we wanted to be more centrally located relative to our members, customers and the U.S. livestock industry as a whole,” stated Bob Morton, RAAA President.
RAAA CEO Tom Brink said the move positions the Association in a major livestock hub and geographically in the middle of the country. “We have members all over the nation, and being more centrally located will make our overall travel easier and more cost efficient. Staff recruitment will improve, plus there are tangible benefits to being located in close proximity to numerous other cattle and livestock organizations.”
All correspondence should be sent to RAAA’s Colorado mailing address: 18335 E. 103rd Ave., Suite 202, Commerce City, CO 80022. The main phone number, 940-387-3502, and corresponding extensions will remain the same.
Staff members are planning an open house in early January 2018 to coincide with members’ travel plans during the National Western Stock Show. Visitors are welcome to tour the office and meet new staff. Details of the open house will be available at RedAngus.org in the future.
The Red Angus Association of America serves the beef industry by enhancing and promoting the competitive advantages of Red Angus and Red Angus-influenced cattle.
