The ARPAS Foundation is in excellent financial condition with a balance of $214,792.98 as of October 30, 2019. This is in large part to the generosity of the ARPAS Executive Vice President – Kenneth Cummings who contributes a portion of his salary each year to the Foundation.
In the past year, the foundation has made almost $6,000 in contributions to educational efforts of our members including the following:
- $1,900 to pay the exam fees of graduate students,
- $2,835 to fund page charges for ARPAS symposium papers published in Applied Animal Science,
- $250 to support the annual meeting of the Midwest Chapter.
The board will have our annual meeting at the 2020 ADSA meeting in West Palm Beach, FL in June (21st – 25th). The date, time and location will be decided in the near future.
