President’s Message

Howdy Friends!

Ready for Texas? We are! The 2024 annual National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA) Conference is being held in Plano TX, a suburb of Dallas that is easily accessible from DFW airport. We cannot wait to see you again.

This year, we not only celebrate our beautiful breeds and the special bond we have with them; we are celebrating you, the devoted, hands-on experts whose lifestyles revolve around animals. Whether training, grooming, breeding, healing, educating, or making sure our animals have the right environments to thrive, you are the ones ensuring they’ll be here for generations to come.

The conference dates are Saturday and Sunday, October 19th and 20th with a reception on Friday night the 18th. The speakers are top tier and the topics of relevance to all animal professionals, advocates, and enthusiasts. The title is a call to action and a reminder that our unique expertise requires us to take leadership: “Animal Experts Unite: Know Your Value – Share Your Knowledge”

See you in Plano!


Patti Strand, NAIA President
