BAS Regional Groups

17 August 2017

Do you want to know more about alpacas? Are you considering alpaca ownership? Or are you deeply smitten but don't want to take one home? Then why not join your local BAS regional group today.

The British Alpaca Society supports a national network of regional alpaca groups who meet on a regular basis to share experiences and knowledge, organise events and talk about the alpaca.

The BAS regional groups are autonomous self-help groups consisting of active BAS members in the given area. The groups also provide an invaluable forum for sharing expertise by organising workshops, lectures at shows and related alpaca events, the emphasis being always on self-help accessibility and local initiative. Each BAS regional group is invited annually to put forward representatives for the BAS National Committees on Showing, Welfare, Education, Media & Marketing and Fibre.

These groups are not exclusive and are open to all, providing an excellent opportunity to learn more about alpacas. Whether you are an owner, a prospective owner, or just interested in these fascinating animals, then your regional group will always make you welcome.

If you own unregistered alpacas and are not a member of the BAS then you should seriously consider joining. Get in contact with your local regional group and move towards bringing your alpacas into the safety of the BAS national network and inclusion into the national herd.
