Across the United States, there are a multitude of state and regional alpaca organizations that work hard to support the alpaca industry and spread the word about alpacas. These organizations increase alpaca awareness, coordinate educational seminars for members and interested individuals alike, and organize competitive events for alpaca owners and breeders. Find out what events are scheduled in New Jersey by logging onto http://www.njacalpacas.org. For those of you that live in the mid-atlantic states, our regional organization is MAPACA. Visit their webiste at http://www.mapaca.org.
