AMI American Meat Institute : Board Votes to Proceed With North American Meat Association Merger

04/02/2014 | 06:39pm US/Eastern

Institute's General Members to Vote Later in April

The American Meat Institute (AMI) Board of Directors today voted to proceed with a merger with the North American Meat Association (NAMA).  The vote is the second of three steps necessary to finalize a merger that would occur January 1, 2015, if approved.

Later this month, the Institute's General Members will vote on whether to proceed.  NAMA's Board voted March 22 to proceed with the merger.

If AMI's General Members vote to proceed, a transition committee drawn from both associations will be established to map a plan to merge association operations by the end of 2014.

"The Board's vote to proceed with a merger is a positive development," said AMI Chairman Greg Benedict, chief operating officer and president of American Foods Group, who serves on the merger committee.   "We look forward to our General Member vote in the coming weeks."
