TSCRA committees will meet on Thursday for an in-depth review of all TSCRA policy. Each committee will be provided ample time to discuss relevant issues and create new policies or to renew or sunset existing policies. These working committee sessions will prove invaluable to all members with concerns about the critical issues facing today's ranchers. The meeting will conclude Friday at noon after the general session/ board meeting. The meeting is open to all TSCRA members and industry friends. Early registration rates are available until September 4. For a detailed schedule or to register, please visit http:// www.texascattleraisers.org/09Fall/ meetinghighlights.htm.
