Recognition of IGA’s Most Active CRs and RDs
Every year the International Goat Association officially recognizes the most active Regional Directors (RD) and Country Representatives (CR). RDs and CRs are an essential part of IGA. We are sincerely grateful for all that they do: promoting IGA and our International Conference on Goats, organizing in-country and regional conferences, soliciting new members, preparing country reports for IGA’s Newsletter, etc.
The Regional Director & Country Representative Committee recently selected the individuals who have done an outstanding job representing IGA in their region or country during the past year. We wish to congratulate them on their involvement and successes.
2020 was a stressful year for everyone, but these Country Representatives and Regional Directors went above and beyond. They accomplished so much and set a new standard for excellence.
The 2020 IGA Achievement Award recipients are Clara Viviana Rúa Bustamante (RD for South America) and for our Country Representative:
We also wish to give an honorable mention and special thanks to Mamta Dhawan from India for her contributions to IGA.
Thank you for all that you do.
