The one great thing about being on the PAOBA Education Committee….you will always have something to do!!!! PAOBA’s Education Committee is two-fold: first we have a target audience comprised of PAOBA members and other alpaca owners, breeders, and enthusiasts, and second, we have the general population and consumers that request alpaca product and animal education.
PAOBA is dedicated to providing our PAOBA members and fellow alpaca owners with relevant education opportunities. Most recently, the Education Committee put together a two day summer event held at Penn State that addressed the Alpaca Industry as a Business and offered a lot of information on everything from setting up your business plan, to revision, to new opportunities within our industry. With almost 70 registrants crowded into a room (and a closet), participants spent two days learning and exchanging a vast amount of incredible information.
Tammy Crum, PAOBA Secretary and PAOBA BOD, is Chairperson of the Education Committee. Marcia Silkowski, Carol Howard, and Sarah Donahoe join her on the committee. If you’d like to participate on the PAOBA Education Committee or if you have suggestions for upcoming events/topics, please fill in the form below or feel free to contact us via email at [email protected]
Our next task will be developing the educational offerings at the PAOBA Showcase. We have two topics so far and we will share them with you in the very near future! Until then, feel free to contact us anytime, either to help or to offer your thoughts. Thank you!
