2. Provide educational opportunities to members through regular professional seminars that cover topics of interest, such as healthcare practices, presented by trained and skilled experts.
3. Draw attention to the economic benefits of the work of breeders and other association members.

5. Serve as a resource for lawmakers by providing science and fact-based information.
