WORKING FOR RANCHERS

The California Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is a non-profit trade association, formed in 1917, that represents California’s ranchers and beef producers in legislative and regulatory affairs. CCA’s funding is generated almost entirely by voluntary dues paid by members, who in turn determine the direction and policy of the organization.

CCA has 38 county cattlemen’s association affiliates that serve as a formidable link between the grassroots membership and CCA. The association is also an affiliate of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association with offices in Washington, D.C., and Denver, Colo.

Our association is:

  • a strong voice that advocates and represents all segments of ranchers and beef producers.

  • dedicated to positively influencing regulations and legislation in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.

  • is fueled by members––the more members involved with the association, the greater return on investment for all.

STRATEGIC PLAN AT A GLANCE

Mission: Enhance and promote a more favorable business environment for California producers.

Purpose
Nourishing people, caring for livestock and sustaining the environment for all Californians.

Values
At the California Cattlemen’s Association, we believe in:

  • Honesty and integrity

  • Collaboration and open dialogue

  • Honoring and preserving California’s ranching heritage

  • Being inclusive and member driven

Vision
Californians value cattle production as an indispensable benefit to our state.

Overarching Strategy
The biggest theme during the strategic planning process was a desire to positively re-position California cattle ranchers and beef producers. When we talk about “positioning” we are talking about the desired perception the association wants people to have in their hearts and minds when they hear about California beef producers. Developing this position will be the foundation for all communication, and will live as an addendum to this plan. That said, the foundation for the positioning strategy will be to highlight California ranchers as stewards of the land and as an indispensable part of the state, thus building off the strategic plan as outlined here.

Strategic Priorities

  • Government Affairs

  • Enhance, Engage and Grow Membership

  • Foster Collaboration and Partnerships

  • Grow Non-Dues Revenue

Important Definitions
Mission: The organization’s core business
Vision: The destination we are working toward
Purpose: The end benefit to people or society
Core values: Principles that drive decision making
Strategic priorities: Areas of focus to achieve the vision
